By Sports Desk March 11, 2022

Sara Misir, the Caribbean’s first Formula Woman finalist, earned herself a top-four spot and has made the Formula Woman team that will compete for McLaren in the GT Cup Championships for 2022.

Misir qualified for the final four spot after emerging with one of the four fastest times among the final 11 in Are, Sweden on Thursday, March 10.

For Misir, this is a victory for women in motorsport.

“I didn’t know my time on the ice track, but I felt good and I had one of the fastest times of the day,” she said.

“I’m overcome with emotions. All my hard work has paid off but this is not just for me, it means other women from Jamaica and the Caribbean can now consider motorsport as a career choice.”

Misir was selected to participate in the Formula Woman final from a field of almost 10,000 applicants. The finalists were tested on speed, mental performance, fitness and technical knowledge related to motorsport.

The top four and two reserve drivers will now train with the McLaren GT4 team starting on Monday. The 2022 GT Cup Championships starts on April 9 at Donington Park National in the United Kingdom.
