About the W Series

W Series is a ground-breaking racing championship for women that launched in October 2018. From day one, our ambitions have been big, and they’ll only get bigger. We’re here to shake up the industry, push aside stereotypes and change the face of motorsport, quite literally.

We firmly believe that women and men can race one another on equal terms provided they are given the same opportunity.

At a time when most other female sports are growing exponentially, there are, in real terms, fewer women racing single-seater cars at the higher levels now than there were 10 years ago.

It is more than 40 years since a female driver last started a Formula 1 race and, unless a positive intervention is made, it could be another 40 years before a woman has the experience and qualifications to take part in a Formula 1 race again. We believe something has to change.

W Series is a catalyst for that change.

In our first year we’ve already given 20 women the opportunity to race relevant cars on relevant tracks, giving them the relevant experience, confidence and qualifications to put them in contention for drives in the upper tiers of motorsport.

After a successful inaugural season in 2019, W Series is delighted to be partnering with Formula 1 for 2021 and beyond.
