Misc Join us at Pride in Motorsport on March 29th as part of the Australian Grand Prix!
I just thought I'd post about an upcoming event i'm organising with the teams at Racing Pride, Proud 2 Play and Motorsport Australia. We posted about it here last year and we had quite a few redditors turn up for the event, so hopefully we can get some more this year!
The event is called Pride in Motorsport and will be held on Wednesday, 29th March 6PM - 8PM at the Victorian Pride Centre in Melbourne, Australia. Best of all, the event is totally FREE!
The Aim of the Event
This event aims to share the experiences of LGBTIQ+ people in motorsport from a grassroots level all the way through to international/F1 series and contrast that with the experiences in other sports. The discussion will talk about the challenges, the surprises and the successes of LGBTIQ+ folk in motorsport. Following the 1 hour panel discussion, a networking and social event will be held to allow people inside and outside the motorsports industry to interact.
Who's Attending Pride in Motorsport?
We have a great range of panellists and hosts including Krystina Emmanouilides (Director, Racing Pride and CFD Engineer, Alfa Romeo F1 Team), Casey Price (Team Owner and Driver, MINI Girl Racer), Bea Vear (Programming & Data Engineer, Driver - Bea Vear Racing), Estelle Clapham (Founder and Creator - The Female Drive) & Campbell Harrison (Australian Sports Climber).
We've also got representatives from a number of Formula 1 teams, Supercar teams, the motorsport industry and LGBTIQ+ sports leaders (as well as some special guests!). If you're an LGBTIQ+ person looking to break in to the industry or just want to chat with people about their experiences, this is great opportunity.
Attend the Event for Your Chance to Win a Pitwalk
People attending the event will also have the chance to win 1 of 10 Australian Grand Prix pitwalks to be held on the Thursday afternoon. Gotta be in it to win it!
Pride in Motorsport 6PM - 8PM, Wednesday, 29th March Victorian Pride Centre, 79/81 Fitzroy Street, St Kilda, VIctoria, Australia (located next to the Albert Park circuit)
**Register here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/pride-in-motorsport-2023-tickets-527962629437
Panel runs from 6PM - 7PM, with the networking event running from 7PM - 8PM.
This event is open to EVERYONE - but the event is focussed on building inclusion and support of LGBTIQ+ people in motorsport.
Will the event be streamed/recorded?
We had lots of requests for the event to be streamed or recorded last year. The event won't be streamed this year, but we're hoping to have a recording to be made available in the weeks after the event.
Thanks for reading, and I hope to see some people from /r/formula1 there!

Daily Facts by /u/Fart_Leviathan
In 2012, six world champions were on the grid: Sebastian Vettel, Jenson Button, Lewis Hamilton, Kimi Räikkönen, Fernando Alonso and Michael Schumacher.
Michael Schumacher won the 1998 British Grand Prix by crossing the line in the pit lane.
1960's privateer Bob Anderson scored his only podium in a car that he financed via taking out a loan on his life insurace, using the fact that if he wrecked it and died, the insurance would serve as collateral.

Off-Topic /r/all Renault re-painted Kimmi Raikkonens 2012 Abu Dhabi winning car
Basically what the title says. YouTube channel Driver61 released video today where he put one of his subscribers to old F1 car after some F4 testing. According to Driver61 this is the car that Kimmi drove to win in 2012 Abu Dhabi GP. Repainting some of the old cars is somewhat usual as we saw Hamiltons McLaren in papaya last year.

News [@GiulyDuchessa] Heard that it will be unlikely that Ferrari will bring big unique update. Basically it will be the special QP format in Imola,less tires sets available make it difficult to work. Pack will be in some steps up to Barcelona but the real change is a bit mysterious

Quotes [Dieter Rencken] "(Hitech) wind tunnel testing is already underway using the former Mercedes facility situated in Silverstone. Hitech is focused on a Mercedes powertrain partnership, which could see Hitech replace the upwardly mobile Aston Martin Racing operation as the de facto Mercedes 'B' team."
