Our mission is to nurture a new generation of women in motorsports by sharing our love of racing, helping young girls see it, dream it, and do it.
The Della Penna Motorsports NextGen Foundation empowers girls between the ages of 5-17 with the knowledge, expertise, skill and mentorship– and most importantly, the opportunities – to supercharge a future in motorsports-whether it’s behind the wheel, in the pits, or behind a computer. From the classroom, to the track, to the podium, we use our love of motorsports to engage and support girls as they rise through the ranks and become the next professional female race car drivers, chassis designers, team engineers, or mechanics. By making opportunities more accessible through racing and STEM education, we can tip the scale of an almost all white, all male sport to one that represents the world around us; female, multi-ethnic, and multi-racial. The next chapter in motorsports history will be written by women and this Foundation wants to provide the kinds of opportunities for them to be competitive and win.
