The initiative is dedicated to promoting and supporting women in motorsport, providing a platform for female drivers to compete on equal terms with their male counterparts. The Iron Dames have made historic strides, including becoming the first all-female team to win a race in the FIA World Endurance Championship in 2023.

The Iron Dames Young Talent selection is a pivotal component of this project, focusing on identifying and nurturing young female talents from junior categories to professional levels.

Speaking about this opportunity, Jessica expressed her gratitude and excitement, “This is a great opportunity for me and those who have been by my side, constantly supporting me throughout this incredible journey. We keep focused and push through.”

Jessica’s journey in karting has been marked by numerous successes and a relentless pursuit of excellence. Her nomination not only highlights her individual accomplishments but also shines a spotlight on the burgeoning motorsport talent in Malta. This is another milestone for us Maltese, continuing to show the motorsport talent we have and sometimes we do not even know.

Inspiring Future Generations

Deborah Mayer, the visionary behind the Iron Dames project, has consistently emphasized the importance of inspiring future generations of women in motorsport. “We will never cease to inspire future generations of women,” she states, and Jessica Calleja’s nomination is a prime example of this mission in action.

Jessica’s participation in the Iron Dames Young Talent selection is a source of pride for Malta and a beacon of hope for aspiring female drivers. It underscores the potential and passion that exists within the island, waiting to be discovered and nurtured.
