FIM must considering all-female-only motorcycle racing tournament in the future

Reflecting on the success of Formula W Series all-female-only open-wheel single-seater formula auto racing tournament that recently introduced in 2019, FIM must evaluate the prospect of all-female-only motorcycle racing tournament in order to attracting female riders, improving female sports including motorcycle racing and also attracting all-female-only motorcycle racing interests. I like the idea of all-female-only motorcycle racing tournament prospect and will be happened in the future as a MOTOGP support race.

The Formula W Series open wheel single seater formula auto racing for all-females only

Do you agree? And please make opinions!

That will have the same level of success as the WNBA. A great virtue signaling venue and a money loser.

Or we could allow women to compete against the men on equal terms and see if they cut it. I don't think they are prohibited from doing so currently, but perhaps they aren't encouraged culturally/socially in quite the same way as the chaps and therefore less females feel they are welcome to compete. Inversely it could well be that they just aren't as interested in a general sense, in much the same way there isn't a great demand for more inclusivity in professions that rely on physical labour.

Michele Moutin proved that they can be competitive almost 40 years ago. Nothing to say in my mind that it has been proven categorically that biology is a limiting factor.

I'd also like to add that I am very interested to read about the views of others on this topic.

Could be a spicy thread!

If any woman has what it takes, she can compete among the men .

its more then just about the racing, you have to be able to sell it because it takes money to make a series work. unfortunately racing is becoming a harder sell, so it will be hard to make successful.

I think the best option for a woman racing series would be in Supercross, there are plenty of women who race off road, and there are plenty of female fans compared to other forms of racing.

I think a females only motorcycle competition makes much more sense then a females only racing series. I believe that motorcycle racing isn't 100% fair to mix women and men as males have naturally more strength to handle the bikes than women do whereas in a car it doesn't feel that physical strength difference is that important to the outcome.

If they want equality, you have to go all the way, not just when it furthers your cause. Demanding an all female competition in any sport is not equality if half the population is excluded. In the WNBA , it is laughable that they are demanding higher salaries based on what men make. If the men’s game lost millions hand over fist, the NBA would not exist. You want equality, you take the bad with the good. No rule or social brow beating can force the buying public to watch women’s sports
