Formula Girl is the brainchild of The Blair Project, a game changing social enterprise, set up by 20 year old Nile Henry, to transform the elite world of motorsport making it more inclusive, affordable and accessible for young people from the grassroots, and support them in carving out rewarding careers as drivers, mechanics and engineers.
The Blair Project specializes in innovating low cost solutions to increase grassroots participation. Projects in development with progressive partner organisations include:-
• a new motorsport curriculum for schools which uses the thrill of kart racing to engage pupils in STEM subjects from as young as 8 years old.
• project to increase the participation of girls in motorsport to close the gender gap, and encourage more girls into science and engineering careers.
• and development of a new urban electric racing facility with a major metropolitan university and local authority.
It’s director of business development and PR is Marilyn Comrie OBE, an award winning entrepreneur and former BBC TV journalist and series producer, who was honoured by Her Majesty The Queen in 2009 for services to women’s enterprise.
