Aston Martin Aramco and Fernando Alonso Inspire the Next Generation of Racers

The team hosted a series of workshops for Spanish students in STEM in Fernando Alonso’s hometown of Ovie

Wednesday, June 19, 2024, Oviedo, Asturias: The Aston Martin Aramco Formula One® Team earlier this week hosted a series of STEM-inspired workshops and karting, together with local hero Fernando Alonso, for over 30 students from across Spain.

Held at the Museo y Circuito Fernando Alonso, in conjunction with the two-time Formula One world champion, the aim was to provide students with inspiration and insight from motorsport and STEM- focused activities. This event follows similar karting programs previously hosted in Riyadh and Shanghai, by the Aston Martin Aramco Formula One® Team and its title partner, Aramco, earlier this year.

The 2024 Aramco Spanish Grand Prix will take place, June 21-23, 2024, with Fernando hoping to score a strong result for the team at his home race.

Fernando Alonso, Aston Martin Aramco Formula One® Team driver, said:

It’s always special to speak with younger generations and see their passion for motor racing. Motorsports has grown in popularity over the years in Spain and we hope to see more Spanish talent making it into the highest level of racing. Aramco is extremely passionate about this topic and it’s great to see such a fantastic program to help these students across many of the STEM disciplines. It was very special to host this event in my hometown and museum. Events like this one today help to engage those battling to make it through the ranks in their chosen disciplines, and raise the interest levels for racing, which leaves a lasting mark in the region and country.

Rania Biltagi, Marketing, Partnership & Sponsorship Manager at Aramco said:

At Aramco, we believe in pushing the limits of possibility through sport, and we are using sports as a platform to drive innovation, create opportunity, improve lives and positively impact society. Together with the Aston Martin Aramco Formula One® Team, we seek to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers, sports fans and even racing drivers. Through these fantastic events, we hope that we continue to ignite the innovative, inclusive, and passionate potential within the youth, who will be the STEM leaders of tomorrow.
