By Prof Dr Ian Blackshaw

The W Series is an international single-seater motor racing championship for female drivers and is aligned with Formula 1.

All the racing cars are the same, which means that the drivers have an equal opportunity to demonstrate their motor racing skills.

The Series has announced that the renowned Italian wine maker, Ferrari Trento, has become the official Sparkling Wine Partner for the 2021 Season, whose eight-race season commenced on 26 June 2021 in support of the Formula 1 Styrian Grand Prix in Austria.

Ferrari Trento is already an Official Partner of Formula 1. See the Post by Prof Dr Ian Blackshaw of 4 March 2021 on the SLT website.

Ferrari Trento is the family-owned winery, based in the Italian Alps and is a global leader in its field, producing its Trentodoc wines for more than a century. The President and CEO, Matteo Lunelli, remarked as follows:

It is with great pride that we round out our presence in the racing world with W Series.”

And added:

We advocate for female leadership and empowerment, causes which must be furthered by raising-up women in sport as well as in other sectors.”

The W Series is the brainchild of Catherine Bond Muir, the CEO of the Series, who commented as follows:

W Series has much to celebrate this year as we embark on our landmark partnership with Formula 1 which will see our racing drivers go wheel-to-wheel at some of the world’s most iconic circuits.”

And added:

There is no better way to toast our arrival on motor racing’s greatest stage than with a glass of Ferrari Trento, the award-winning toast of F1 celebrations.”
