The eSkootr Championship has announced it has appointed Silvia Bellot as its Director of Sport and Race Director.
As the first and only female F1 Steward and FIA Race Director, Bellot has amassed a wealth of experience in a variety of disciplines.
Not only was Bellot the Race Director for F2 and F3, but she also spent over a decade as F1, WTCC, WRC, FE, F2 and F3 Chair and International Steward.
Born in Barcelona, Spain, she is a passionate advocate for social and education programmes that increase women’s participation in motorsport, most notably through her role as an ambassador for the FIA Women in Motorsport Commission.
At the eSC, Bellot will share her expertise in sporting and technical regulations, race control management, and track safety and sporting procedures.
This will ensure eSC is well-regulated and race events are run to the highest possible standards of global sport.
“The opportunity to help create a totally new sport and shape a racing series that has the desire to use its platform for a wider purpose is what really attracted me to eSC,” said Bellot.
“The Championship’s mission is to deliver a sport at the highest level, with sustainability and accessibility at its core. Its values are those that are important to me in my sporting roles and my commitment to furthering the participation of women in motorsport. The co-founders have assembled an impressive team of experienced professionals to deliver against this vision and I am delighted to be working with them.”
Hrag Sarkissian, eSkootr Championship Co-Founder and CEO, added: “As our Director of Sport and Race Director, Silvia’s expertise and experience will be crucial as we implement the regulations to ensure we provide exciting on-track racing whilst maintaining the highest levels of safety and fairness for our riders.”
