W SERIES PARTNERS WITH PUMA MOTORSPORT
W Series, the all-new motor racing championship for female drivers only, has added PUMA Motorsport to its expanding family of world-class partners as it gears up for the opening race of the season at Hockenheim, Germany, in May.
PUMA is intimately associated with the highest levels of motorsport. The sports company currently supplies Scuderia Ferrari, Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport and Aston Martin Red Bull Racing within Formula 1 as well as BMW Motorsport in DTM, IMSA, WEC and Formula E; and Team Penske in NASCAR and IndyCar.
The PUMA Motorsport partnership with W Series concentrates on the supply of high-performance flame-retardant racewear for W Series’ drivers and reserve drivers, to ensure Formula 1 standards of safety, performance and comfort. The triple-layer Nomex race suits will be uniquely tailored to optimise fit for each driver.
