The first-ever W Series driver selection programme took place in Austria in January this year, under the watchful eye of former F1 driver, Alex Wurz.

It featured a series of very tough of tests involving all aspects of a racing driver’s skill-set – not only the driving itself but also physical fitness, mental aptitude, psychological and psychometric testing, communications/media/PR skills and more.

Alongside Alex on the judging panel were two other talented racers, David Coulthard and Lyn St James.

It was a crucial and challenging test for all the W Series qualifiers.
