Racers react to all-female racing series

by Web Editor on 10th October 2018

The womens only W Series has sparked debate on social media. Numerous figures have reacted, including Motor Sport's editorial team

David Coulthard and Adrian Newey have put their names behind W Series, a new racing category hoping to 'address the historical gender imbalance in motor sport.'

It will be free to enter, with fully-funded drives for those chosen to join the grid. A prize fund of $1.5million has been raised.

The overall champion will receive $500,000.

The series is expected to begin in 2019, with six rounds through the season. It will use the Tatuus Formula 3 chassis, powered by a 1.8-litre turbocharged engine.
