W Series, the new single-seater motor racing championship for female drivers only, has announced an initial list of six races for the 2020 championship.


W Series, the new single-seater motor racing championship for female drivers only, has announced an initial list of six races, including exciting new fixtures at St. Petersburg, Russia, and Anderstorp, Sweden. All the six races are to be run in conjunction with W Series' valued partner, DTM, forming part of the 2020 W Series championship.

The initial six races take place at St. Petersburg (Russia), Anderstorp (Sweden), Monza (Italy), Norisring (Germany), Brands Hatch (U.K.), and Assen (Netherlands).

The W Series race at St Petersburg will be run on a newly built circuit called Igora Drive, measuring 4.086km in length, designed by the famous Formula One circuit designer Hermann Tilke. Anderstorp Raceway is coincidentally almost exactly the same length at 4.025km, but it is by contrast a historic circuit, having been built in 1968 and having hosted the Formula One Swedish Grand Prix from 1973 to 1978. It has also been used over the years by Grand Prix motorcycles and World Superbikes, European Touring Car Championship cars, World Touring Car Championship cars and FIA GT Championship cars.
