    I'll be watching it. Double header too. You might wish to change the title to just W Series 2021, and we'll run this thread for the year.

    An all British front row. Alice Powell on pole Sarah Moore in 2d and Belen Garcia in 3rd. Where is Jamie Chadwick?


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,546 ✭✭✭✭ AMKC


    Also there is now teams in it. Which is new for this year and means sponsors too.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,546 ✭✭✭✭ AMKC


    Some good racing so far. There is not a Japanese a Brazilian I think and an American racing on it too. Some great liverys on the cars too. Much easier now to know who is who compared to last season 2019 when all the cars looked the same.

    Great drive by Alice Powell. Sarah moore 2and and WohlWend who game from 9th to 3rd. Driver of the day maybe. Alice Powell with Racing X.

    That was good. I enjoyed that.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,437 ✭✭✭ Charlie-Bravo


    That was a good race. Bit scrappy but that's to be expected after so long out of the cars.

    Wasn't Gosia Rdest out of the top 12 in 2019 (if I remember), how is she still racing in 2021?

    Yes Rdest was outside the top 12 in 2019, she was named this year as a reserve entry. Should have been Tasmin Pepper for the full season drive but seems she had some covid related travel issues

    They need a better highlights package! 4 minutes long with some of that dedicated to the intro reel and outro. Plenty of bumps anyways.

    Started watching Driven on All4 which covers the 2019 season and the driver selection process. Good idea to do something like that from the off especially with how Drive to Survive has gotten people (back) into F1. Will carry on watching the series and will try to follow the W Series on-track action this year.

    🤪



  • Registered Users Posts: 645 ✭✭✭ Debub


    Yes - Driven was good, gave a little background, I didn't have a clue about the most of the drivers. Races are usually good - the last (2019) reverse grid one was super. Will be watching all the races, hoe that they can do more than 8 next time around. Also maybe increase the 30 minutes limit and get more powerful cars.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,437 ✭✭✭ Charlie-Bravo


    Yes, it'd be a great idea if they could get these drivers up to F2 spec cars in the next year or so (hopefully it being an F2 W Series), and bring in new talent to the current cars (F3 spec). It's great there's plenty of reserve drivers, now give them the cars to showcase their skills.

    Watching these cars on the same circuit as F1 cars, they do look quite slow on the Telly.
    Alice Powell way down the grid surprisingly. Jamie Chadwick back to top

    A little bit of racing in todays race but for the most part it was boring. Well done to Jamie do.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,546 ✭✭✭✭ AMKC


    The Women are back racing again this weekend too. Saturday at 1:05pm live on Channel 4.



  • Registered Users Posts: 12,546 ✭✭✭✭ AMKC


    First race of the day about to start. Bring it on.



  • Registered Users Posts: 12,546 ✭✭✭✭ AMKC


    That was a good race. Some overtaking most of it clean. There was one that got touched and ended her race. There was a safety car too after one of them went off for whatever reason I do not know. They never showed it. The racing at the front between Alice Powell and Fabienne Wohlwend was good too.

    Congratulations to the winner in the end.

    It could have been either of them.



  • Registered Users Posts: 12,546 ✭✭✭✭ AMKC





  • Registered Users Posts: 645 ✭✭✭ Debub


    There was another one - the overtake by Visser on Moore, right at the end of the race, it took almost half the lap to get the move done and was great to watch with them side by side and Abbi Pulling right behind them



  • Registered Users Posts: 645 ✭✭✭ Debub


    Beitske Visser, Alice Powell, Jamie Chadwick, Fabienne Wohlwend, Emma Kimilainen and Sarah Moore, I think are clearly above the rest of the field. Abbi Pulling was impressive on debut also and only 19 years old.



  • Registered Users Posts: 11,228 ✭✭✭✭ flazio


    Fun fact, Abbie Eaton is the Grand Tour version of "The Stig" (professional racing driver who drives super cars around a lap to see which is fastest)

    Her girlfriend, Jessica Hawkins is also a racing driver in the W Series.

    Unless there were husband and wife racers in endurance racing, this may well be the first time a couple professionally race each other in the same series.

    Sorry, Stewart and Jessica Friesen beat them by both racing in the NASCAR Truck race at Knoxville on July 9 (and would have been even earlier in the Bristol dirt race at the end of March, but Jessica failed to qualify when the heat races were cancelled). Unless that doesn't count because they both raced under the same stable?
