​JAS Motorsports is proud to be a sponsor of Marit Stromoy, the first and only woman in history to thus far win an F1 World Cup Event!

The tidal wave of interest generated by Marit Stromoy following her epic win in the Grand Prix of Sharjah last year continues, with the first woman in history to win an F1H2O Grand Prix being understandably recognized for her outstanding achievement back home in Norway.

The 39-year-old received the accolade of athlete of the year at a glittering awards gala in Sandefjord,  ahead of a host of national and international sporting stars. “The award is a great recognition [for] the sport, in competition with other more well-known sports in Norway. It's not often a motorsport, especially powerboats, is even mentioned in these contexts.”

Stromoy has been in demand in the sport press and on national TV but has also crossed the sporting divide, guesting on prime time TV on Scandinavia’s number celebrity talk show appearing alongside Abba’s Bjørn Ulvaeus. “It’s been hectic to say the least. We've had a lot of nationwide media exposure and hopefully, it will help us in the very important chase for sponsorship that we're facing these days.”

The next show after receiving the award for Marit was the F1H2O season-opener in Dubai on March 2-4.

JAS is a proud sponsor and the logistics provider for Marit, and handles the logistics and transportation of all of her racing equipment for her races all over the world.
