Officials for the W Series, the racing series for women that launched in October 2018, have announced it will host a three-day test from Monday, September 16 to Wednesday, September 18, to decide new-for-2020 drivers.

The driver selection program will take place at the Circuito de Almeria in Andalusia, Southeast Spain.

“The 2019 W Series season has been a roaring success, but we fully intend that the 2020 W Series season will be bigger and better,” W Series Chief Executive Officer Catherine Bond Muir said. “I’m excited to discover the quality of our new applicants, and there’s no better way of appraising them than putting them in W Series race cars for three days, so that’s what we’re going to do.”

The top 12 finishers in the 2019 W Series championship are already guaranteed places in the 2020 W Series championship, which will give the opportunity for competitors to earn Super License points.

The 12 competitors include Jamie Chadwick (UK), Beitske Visser (NLD), Alice Powell (UK), Marta Garcia (ESP), Emma Kimilainen (FIN), Fabienne Wohlwend (LIE), Miki Koyama (JPN), Sarah Moore (UK), Vicky Piria (ITA), Tasmin Pepper (RSA), Jessica Hawkins (UK) and Sabre Cook (USA). 

A remaining eight positions are up for grabs. Around 40 drivers have already applied, according to the series. Applicants must be female and must hold an FIA International C racing license.
