Tereza Babickova Out Of Singapore Race Due To Injury

W Series today announces that Tereza Babickova will not take part in the seventh race of the 2022 season in Singapore on 30 September-2 October due to injury.

While competing in the Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine (FRECA) on 10 September, Tereza sustained a spinal injury during an incident in the first race of the weekend at the Red Bull Ring, Spielberg, Austria.

Tereza has returned to her native Czech Republic where she is receiving medical treatment. Doctors have ruled her out of all racing activities until further notice. In addition to the W Series race at the Marina Bay Street Circuit, Singapore, Tereza will also miss the Formula 3 test at Circuit de Nevers Magny-Cours, France, which she was due to take part in on 16-17 September.

An announcement regarding Tereza’s replacements for both events, as well as updates on her condition, will be made in due course. Everybody at W Series wishes Tereza well, and a full and speedy recovery.

Dave Ryan (Racing Director, W Series) said:
“First and foremost, I am glad that Tereza is in good spirits and receiving excellent medical treatment for her injury. She has made a good start to her W Series racing career this year, hence why several opportunities in other single-seater categories have come her way in the last few months. She is a promising and determined young driver, and that combination means there is every chance that further opportunities, with the likes of Formula 3, will present themselves again in the future. For now, she is focusing on her recovery which W Series will support her in fully to ensure it is as quick as possible. We send her our best and wish her a strong and speedy return to racing in due course.”
