Caitlin Wood

International level racing driver & coach showing girls & women worldwide 'hardwork does not have a gender'

Caitlin Wood is a 26 year old Australian racing driver. She is the first Australian woman to compete successfully on the European stage of Motorsport with the goal of becoming the first Australian woman to win the prestigious 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Caitlin is an active speaker and an advocate for equality and diversity in sport. Having being involved in a male dominant sport her whole life, Caitlin is passionate about bringing more women into Motorsport and showing them about the sport that has given her so much.

Caitlin began karting at the age of 7. After watching her brother for years, she decided it was her turn to have some fun and cause some chaos. In turn, it became a lifelong passion of fun that she is still pursuing today. She competed in the junior ranks of Australian motorsport before moving to the other side of the world by herself at 18 to follow her dreams. Caitlin has since competed in multiple championships including the European GT4 Championship, Blancpain GT Series in a GT3 Lamborghini and the inaugural all women's Formula 3 Championship - The W Series.

To not be afraid, taking risks and working hard are all key messages that Caitlin covers in her talks. Caitlin's message of 'Hardwork does not have a gender' is something that has resonated with her throughout her career and a message she is trying to prove to the world. Caitlin shows her fun, personable side whilst leaving your attendees with the drive to put their own plans into action.

Motorsport, sponsorship, fitness, sport, fast cars... it has it all. Caitlin can also tailor her talks to incorporate your own message to make sure everyone has a great time and can make the most out of it.
