Web Bikeworld: The Italians Have a New Women’s Championship

As seen in The Web Bikeworld: From my interactions with the ‘Most Winningest Rider,’ Shayna Texter-Bauman, to watching Vanessa Ruck win after win in the toughest two-wheel competitions in the world.

As I continue my journey writing in the Powersports industry, I find myself running into some pretty amazing women. all the way to picking Amber Spencer’s brain on new innovative technologies in electric motorcycles, the lineup has been incredible.

Couple the successes of these lovely ladies with the fact that the number of women on motorcycles has been increasing as of late, and we totally get why the Italian Motorcycle Federation (IMF), or Federazione Motociclistica Italiana (FMI) has created a whole new championship for women. 

The race calendar is slotted to begin in 2023, with the following rounds projected as the ladies – christened the ‘Campionato Italiano Velocità Femminile’ (CIV), or the ‘Italian Women’s Speed Championship’ – join other riders in the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC):

Round 1: April 30, 2023 – Misano World Circuit ‘Marco Simoncelli’

Round 2: June 11, 2023  – Magione Autodromo dell’Umbria

Round 3: July 2, 2023 – Modena Racetrack

Round 4: September 3, 2023  – Mugello Circuit

Round 5: September 17, 2023  – Varano de’ Melegari ‘Riccardo Paletti’ Racetrack

Round 6: October 8, 2023 – Enzo and Dino Ferrari Imola International Racetrack
