Calderon Relishes Role as Model for Women in Racing

Tatiana Calderon understands the significance of this moment – her rookie season in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES – and what it means for legions of young girls who are looking for a role model at racing’s highest level. This year, from coast-to-coast in person and on TV across the world, young girls, women and aspiring female race car drivers have a new mentor. Reflecting on this moment for National Girls and Women in Sports Day, Calderon said one of the leading factors that brought her to the NTT INDYCAR SERIES was its history with providing opportunities to women. Even though she has yet to make an NTT INDYCAR SERIES start, Calderon said she can feel the INDYCAR community rooting for her. It made Calderon realize that she, too, could forge a path as a race car driver in a male-dominated sport. “When you see a driver winning an INDYCAR race and leading the Indy 500, you think, ‘Wow, that’s really possible,’” Calderon said.
