Maria Costello MBE, from Northamptonshire, has been appointed as the newest member of the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme Women in Motorcycling Commission (CFM).

The FIM board of directors met last week and accepted her candidature, also approved by the Auto Cycle Union, making Maria the newest member of the commission, which aims to create egalitarian opportunities and to promote equal treatment for women involved in activities related to motorcycling. 

Having promoted similar values personally, Maria was a natural choice for the role and will be responsible for providing expertise in the area of road racing: “I’m very honoured that the CFM has accepted me as a member. I’m very passionate about promoting women in motorcycling and ensuring that opportunities are made available on an equal footing. I’m looking forward to the role and hope that the commission will benefit from my road racing expertise and experience,” explained Costello.
