W Series, the international single-seater motor racing championship for women, today announces that it will stage a race in Singapore in support of the Formula 1® Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix 2022 on 30 September-2 October for the first time in its history.
The race at the Marina Bay Street Circuit will be W Series’ first in Asia and replace the previously announced event in Japan as the seventh race of the 2022 season. Due to unforeseeable operational challenges, the W Series race at the Suzuka International Racing Course in support of the Formula 1® Honda Japanese Grand Prix 2022 on 7-8 October will no longer take place.
Reigning double champion Jamie Chadwick has won the first five races of W Series’ record 10-race 2022 campaign. The season-opening double-header in Miami, USA, was followed by races in Barcelona, Spain, Silverstone, UK – which attracted a peak UK TV audience of more than one million viewers and the highest-ever race audience in W Series history – and Le Castellet, France.
W Series will complete its European tour by staging a race at the Hungaroring, Hungary, this weekend (29-30 July) before F1’s traditional summer break in August. After that, the series’ third on-track season will conclude with races in Singapore, and Austin, Texas, USA, before finishing with a double-header in Mexico City, Mexico, in October.
