Zoe Hannah – 1st Place & Official 2017 Woman of Motorsports

Car Chix, the premier motorsports organization for women, hosted yet another record breaking Women of Motorsports contest to celebrate women in motorsports and the automotive industry.    The contest ran from September 16th through September 23rd. 

“Every year, the Women of Motorsports Contest gets bigger and bigger all across the board — from entries to participation to publicity.  This year was no different.  We expect it to be even bigger and better next year,” says Jeanette DesJardins, President & Founder of Car Chix.

Over the eight day contest period, 543 women from all across the world competed in the Car Chix Women of Motorsports Contest to earn a spot in the 2018 Car Chix Calendar, become Official Car Chix Members and for a shot to be named The 2017 Woman of Motorsports.

Katie Hocking – 2nd Place

This was the 7th year for the Car Chix Women of Motorsports Contest.  When Car Chix first introduced the contest in 2010, only 50 women competed and the contest lasted two weeks.  Obviously, the contest has not only evolved over the years, but it has grown tremendously.
