When I was 12 I’d started racing internationally and some boys couldn’t handle being slower than a girl. They started smashing me off the track so I had to learn to be quite hard. I always had the speed to be in front but I had to learn the mindset too. W Series is changing perceptions – we have more respect as drivers now and it is spurring me on.View biography

W Series is a free-to-enter championship, launched in October 2018, that provides equal opportunities for women and eliminates the financial barriers that have historically prevented them from progressing to the upper echelons of motorsport.
W Series drivers are selected purely on their ability and the series’ cars are mechanically identical, which means that W Series races and championships will be won by the most talented drivers, rather than those with the wealthiest backers.
The more high-profile female role models it can create, the more W Series believes it will inspire young girls to go karting, bringing more females into the grassroots of the sport. Central to W Series’ mission is the idea that if you can see it, you can be it.
We want to build the world’s most popular and inclusive female sporting series that inspires and empowers females to be a part of motorsport on equal terms with men. In the process, we hope to create a platform to accelerate gender equality the world over.
We want to see women from all over the world racing in the upper echelons of motorsport, including in F1.
