Rethink Racing

Introducing W Series, the ground-breaking women’s racing series with a serious ambition:
to change the face of motorsport. Quite literally.

Why W Series?

Successful racing drivers have to be skilled, determined, physically fit, brave and competitive. But they don’t have to be men.

W Series aims to give remarkable female drivers an opportunity in motorsport that simply hasn’t been available to them before now.

Talent does not have a gender. We believe anyone with skill, passion and commitment should have a chance to race at the pinnacle of motorsport, and W Series will create those chances, open doors and fuel our future.

The future of racing starts with W.


From latest news, information updates and remarkable moments, these are our stories.
