  1. What is the W Series Esports League and how will it work?

    W Series

    With the 2020 W Series postponed because of the coronavirus pandemic, the W Series Esports League has been launched to fill the void until an expanded 2021 on-track calendar is started.

    The Esports League is a 10-round series, taking place every Thursday from 11 June. Similarly to the on-track version it is women-only racing but this time via simulation.

    All 18 drivers that qualified for the on-track W Series are expected to take part alongside some previous W Series drivers.

    How will it work?

    The opening round will feature three races:

    • Race 1: 15 mins
    • Race 2 (reverse grid): 15 mins
    • Race 3: 20 mins

    The starting grid for the reverse-grid race will be determined by the finishing positions from race one. To promote close, fair competition and an authentic ‘League’ feel, points for each race will be awarded as follows:

    • Race 1: 20-17-15-13-11-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 (1st – 15th) & one point for fastest lap
    • Race 2: 20-17-15-13-11-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 (1st – 15th) & one point for fastest lap
    • Race 3: 20-17-15-13-11-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 (1st – 15th) & one point for fastest lap

    At the end of the W Series Esports League season, the driver who has scored the most points will be declared the winner of the W Series Esports League.

  2. Who will be competing in the W Series Esports League?

    Jamie Chadwick

    Great Britain's Jamie Chadwick, who won the 2019 W Series Championship, is set to be taking part alongside the 17 other drivers that were due to race in the on-track 2020 Championships.

    They will be joined by some specially invited guests to form a larger field with drivers from across the world taking part in the 10-round series.

    Alongside Chadwick, as Great Britain representatives, are Alice Powell (third in the 2019 standings) Sarah Moore (eighth in 2019), Jessica Hawkins (11th in 2019) and Abbie Eaton.

    The full list of drivers:

    Ayla Agren (Norway), Jamie Chadwick, Alice Powell, Sarah Moore, Jessica Hawkins, Abbie Eaton (all GB), Sabre Cook (USA), Belen Garcia, Marta Garcia, Nerea Marti (all Spain), Emma Kimilainen (Finland), Miki Koyama (Japan), Tasmin Pepper (South Africa), Vicky Piria (Italy), Gosia Rdest (Poland), Naomi Schiff (Rwanda), Irina Sidorkova (Russia), Bruna Tomaselli (Brazil), Beitske Visser (Netherlands), Fabienne Wohlwend (Liechtenstein), Caitlin Wood (Australia).

    Reigning W Series champion Jamie Chadwick is looking to add the sim racing version of her title in the next 10 weeks as the series turns to Eracing.

    The 2020 on-road series has been cancelled, but the all-women's W Series Esports League sees drivers head for the simulators to ensure that racing continues.

    "With the rate of progression over the past few years, the future could be really exciting," said Chadwick.

  4. Vandoorne wins Formula E’s Race From Home

    Mercedes’ Stoffel Vandoorne won Formula E’s virtual Race at Home Challenge last Sunday, finishing second in Sunday's Grand Final after seven weeks of virtual racing.

    The Belgian former McLaren F1 driver started the final race over the Berlin Tempelhof circuit 14 points behind Mahindra’s Pascal Wehrlein but, with double points on offer, cruised to a comfortable victory as Wehrlein, dropped to the back of the field by an early pile-up, recovered well but could only finish ninth.

    Britain's Oliver Rowland won the race for Nissan, his fourth podium finish in a row.

    “It has been a good championship, a lot of fun,” said Vandoorne. “But I’m looking forward to real life and the start of the real season soon and putting these performances into reality."

    Formula E’s revised calendar for 2020 is expected to be announced shortly as the series looks to complete a season that was halted in March.
