PARIS – Officials from the W Series, the international single-seater motor racing championship for female drivers, has revealed the provisional race calendar for the upcoming season.
The provisional W Series calendar will consist of eight Formula One support races.
“The prospect of seeing W Series race alongside Formula One, the world’s premier motor racing series, has become even more tantalizing as a result of today’s announcement of our 2021 race calendar,” said W Series CEO Catherine Bond Muir. “The eight races will allow our fast and fearless female racing drivers to showcase their skills on some of the world’s most iconic racing circuits, in Europe and the Americas, and literally follow in the tire tracks of the greatest racing drivers in the world today.
“W Series’ mission will always be to further the interests and prospects of female racing drivers, and to inspire girls and women everywhere. Our 2021 race schedule in partnership with Formula One will significantly increase our global reach, impact and influence by placing W Series on motor racing’s greatest stage and taking us to new audiences and territories. Our drivers are ready and raring to race and entertain, and the 2021 season curtain-raiser in France next June cannot come soon enough.”
