Silverstone-based F3 specialists will provide full race operation package

W Series has appointed Hitech GP to operate its full six-race programme for the year.

The appointment provides the first details of the W Series racing operation and follows last week’s announcement of the long-list of 55 qualifying drivers who will compete for a seat in one of the 18 Tatuus T-318 Formula 3 cars on the grid next year.

Dave Ryan, Racing Director at W Series, said:

“We are delighted to partner with such a professional and ambitious team – it will be a critical part of our success as, together, we continue to prepare for our first season next year.”

Silverstone-based F3 specialists, Hitech GP, will provide a full race operation package to W Series, including preparation, shipping and all trackside requirements. Hitech GP will also supply race engineers and pit crew for each of the cars.

Hitech GP Team Owner, Oliver Oakes, said:

“With so much experience of racing today’s F3 cars, we feel we are the ideal partner for W Series, but, beyond that, it’s great to be able to support more females into motorsport, both behind the wheel and in the pit garages and workshops too.”

Operational support for W Series will be provided by Dan Hodder and a team of around 50 staff.

Hitech GP F3 teams have recorded numerous successes in European and Asian championships including overall third place in the 10-round 2018 FIA F3 European Championship.

“This is a significant step towards our first race in May next year,” said W Series CEO, Catherine Bond Muir, “and for us all at W Series the dream is now very real.”
