First female FIM WC!!! Congratulations Ana Carrasco!

Post by -ZeroGravityToilet- »

A little surprised this hasn't made it to the forum yet, I think it is a very deserving news in a motorsport forum. And in such troubling times, it is perhaps even more fitting.

We have our first female bike World Champion! Congratulations to Ana Carrasco!

I guess Ana's feat could compare with Michelle Mouton's...?

Please do not bring politics into this forum, God knows there are enough political forums already.

Agreed - let's just concentrate on a great achievement.

Okay, well on topic I don't really know much about motorcycle racing, and certainly not regional motorcycle racing. Was she racing against a decent field? Is there a feeling she can go higher up the tiers?

Either way, big congratulations for her. :thumbup:

She's already been higher. Raced in Moto3. First women to score points in Moto3, highest race finish of 8th. Couple of bad seasons (bikes/sponsorship) and left after a couple of accidents in 2015. Probably would have been a regular points scorer with the right bike.
