MIAMI, Florida — Park City’s Lia Block, 17, daughter of Ken Block, is racing in the F1 Academy at the Miami Grand Prix representing Williams Racing Team this week.

F1 Academy champions the next generation of female talent to explore their own motorsport journeys. By breaking down barriers to entry on track in the F1 Academy Racing Series and through grassroots initiatives they hope to make motorsport more diverse, inclusive and accessible.

Block made an appearance on Good Morning America in the days leading up to the Miami race.

Norris from Great Britain on Team McLaren won first place in the main GP division with the checkered flag, Verstappen of Team Red Bull from France came in second, and Monaco’s Leclerc of Team Ferrari finished third. 

Members of the Block family recently attended an event at Woodward Park City which commemorated her late father Ken Block, who himself was a breakout athlete achieving success in the worldwide motorsports  industry.
