Tatiana Calderón, Formula 2 driver has accepted an invitation to attend the W Series 2020 driver selection event in Almeria, southern Spain, to share her extensive racing experience and learn more about the international single-seater championship.  

Tatiana, an Alfa Romeo Racing F1 Team test driver, is in her debut FIA Formula 2 season with the BWT Arden Team, following several years competing in a variety of single-seater championships, including GP3 and Formula 3.

She will join the W Series team in Almeria, southern Spain, where 14 new drivers are set to take part in the selection programme to determine the W Series grid for the 2020 season. The three-day test, starting on Monday September 16, will include concentrated evaluation using the sophisticated W Series simulators as well as track time in the state-of-the-art Tatuus T-318 Formula 3 car.

Tatiana will only join the first out of three days of testing but will take every opportunity to share her experiences with the younger, less experienced drivers. 

W Series CEO, Catherine Bond Muir, said:

“We have been watching Tatiana’s career with great interest, and she is clearly one of the most successful female drivers in the world. We have seen some brilliant talent emerge during our first W Series season, and so naturally we are really happy to have her support. With her experience she already knows the strengths you need to succeed.”

Tatiana Calderón said:

“I’m excited to meet the other drivers on track, learn more about W Series and give a bit back to the sport that I love, and that has given me so much.”
