Format of the Karting Slalom Cup has been announced: ‘For the FIA Motorsport Games, two equal slalom tracks of approximately 70 metres will be created at Vallelunga Circuit near Rome. Following practice runs, participants will complete three laps of each course behind the wheel of an e-kart. The first tour will be a test run, while laps two and three will be timed’.

‘The combined times for each nation will establish an overall leaderboard, with the fastest teams progressing to a knockout phase. The next four rounds will be head-to-head time trials, culminating in the gold medallists emerging during the final’. Reference FIA Motorsport Games.

With the benefit of developing her F4 racing skills competing in the Winfield Challenge, Doriane has clocked up additional race kms as well as acknowledgement from her racing peers.

Doriane: ‘This experience was great. I learned a lot about the car on the track. I had the chance to drive on the Paul-Ricard circuit! It is awesome! I had the opportunity to meet Jarno Trulli who congratulated me for my good commitment and my driving skills!

Receiving recognition for outstanding performance on the track, Doriane was awarded special opportunity of ‘2 days of F4 testing on the Paul Ricard circuit with the FFSA Academy. Included in the training was simulator work, physical and mental preparations and coaching with the Winfield Racing school.

Doriane: ‘This award was a great opportunity for me. I was able, thanks to this prize, to train again on the Paul-Ricard circuit and to continue learning by getting closer to the times of the winner of the race. But necessarily it is not what I wanted, because my objective is to win racing F4′.

Looking ahead to competing in 2019 FIA Motorsport Games Karting Slalom Cup, Doriane Pin has that one goal in mind- t0 win!
