Through excessive effort and hard work, the 15-member ‘Team Auj’ has successfully secured its place as a registered participant of the International Formula Student competition, a press release issued here said.
This initiative taken by young students raise women participation in the motor-sports industry is gaining momentum as these talented girls continue to utilize their skills and knowledge in designing and manufacturing a formula-style race car for the competition.
The team is not only determined to land a position among the top most teams of the competition but is also prepared to have its impact on the society by encouraging able women to put their knowledge and creativity to a better, more practical use. Team Auj is one of the many initiatives to increase women empowerment but what sets it apart from other campaigns is its access to an international audience. It also aims at encouraging Pakistani women to involve themselves in projects that are usually restricted to the male gender and broaden their horizons, allowing them to become more independent.

It is demonstrating their exemplary skills to an international audience through Formula Student, enabling the world to see the real capability of Pakistani women. Wardah Jamal, Marketing Manager of Team Auj, said that it was the ‘first all girls team’ which would represent Pakistan in the competition with car No 199 on the race track.—APP
