Motor sports is all revved up today on the announcement of a new race category, the W Series.
Set to launch next year with 6 races already scheduled, the W Series is a women’s only single seat championship with a $500,000 purse going to the winner. The money is meant to be used to give the winning driver a much needed funding to enter Formula 1. The news has been met with positive and negative responses.
All races are in Europe for now, but the organizers expect to bring their championship to North America and East Asia by 2020.
