Physical training sports are hobbies and passion of many people, both male and female.
However, high-risk sports seem like only men being brave to complete the race. But Japanese girl, 11 years old, Juju Noda is the first child car racer in the world to drive a standard Formula 1 FIA racing car.
Juju Noda (11 years old) is considered the first child car racer in the world to participate in the Formula 1 FIA racing car. She is the youngest athlete to sign a professional racing contract with special privileges. But she is still not old enough to join the track until she is 16 years old.
Local tournament commentators commented that her talent was extraordinary and rare. So what about her makes others curious and interested. Therefore, when asked what her future goal is, Juju did not hesitate and immediately replied: “I want to win F1 racing (Formula 1) and be the first girl to do it.”
Maybe Juju’s talent and speed of passion inherited from his father, Mr. Hideki Noda. Her father is also an F1 driver, discovered and encouraged by the girl very early, he helped her to participate and break the record of Formula 4 racing at Okayama International Racecourse with time is 1 minute 32.8 seconds, in U17 category.
No one expected a girl who weighed less than 30kg to drive a race car with a mass of 4 times body weight. Previously, Juju cried because it was not strong enough and endured to drive. But Juju took it as a stepping stone to a long step forward. After all, since he was 3 years old, Juju tried driving a small race car, and more recently, she won almost every race she attended. Therefore, when asked to participate in the F4 race, Juju did not miss this opportunity.
In the unofficial F4 race in the recent U17 category, Juju defeated two other riders older than her. But things were only at the beginning when her father wanted her to continue her natural talent at a higher level, racing cars F3 (Formula 3) at the end of 2017. Naturally, to raise a level Higher requires Juju to work harder.
Although there are remarkable achievements, Juju is not complacent and continues to focus on his path. The idol and rival she always wanted to compete with was Lance Stroll – an 18-year-old Canadian F1 driver. Stroll athletes are champions F4 and F3 before reaching the current F1 champion. And that’s the way that Juju is right for her to pursue.
