Podium was launched in 2007 by Lyn
St. James. The overreaching goal of Project Podium
was to provide financial assistance in the form of matching grants
to women drivers to help further their professional careers.
Secondarily, the Project Podium process introduced or further
provided experience for drivers in the very important
business aspect of the racing industry by the matching fund requirement.
We are excited to announce that in early 2013 we have combined resources with The Women's Sports Foundation to establish the
Women’s Sports Foundation “Women in the Winner’s Circle Project Podium Grant” for women in motorsports. All applications will be reviewed by a panel under the leadership of Lyn St. James. Click here for the application.
This grant would not be possible without the help of the following: iRacing.com, Arciero Miller Racing, and Pirelli Tires. Other Project Podium partners include: Grand American Road Racing, NHRA Championship Drag Racing, Rolex, Newman’s Own, Toyota, Mazda, and Mike Helton.
