ps isn't Chadwick also an Aston Martin factory driver, GTs ?
Yes she is. She signed as an Aston Martin factory driver last month. She will be racing in the VLN for them.

That's what I meant by opportunity. Signing as a factory driver is the dream for most racers.

Watching it because I love racing. Actually outraged at it though because motorsport does not care what gender you are. Infact if you are fast enough being a female is an advantage angle that can be used. Speaking from experience from karting as a kid at national level none of the drivers ever saw a difference between the boys and the girls it was just someone else to beat, or be beaten by.

Chadwick should walk this. She is too good. What is Abby Pulling doing this season out of interest?

As above, watching it as I love racing. Good on them, if it opens doors for some then it's no bad thing.

Looking forward to this. Don’t get the hate, it’s simply more racing and more exposure - what’s not to like.

They could have used more colours for the cars.

Just to clarify when they have only 4 (?) colour schemes it'll make it hard for the commentators to spot who is who which will only make it more chaotic.

Didn't know Paster Maldonado had secretly entered this.

It's not Lee McKenzie commentating. She's presenting. It's Claire Cottingham commentating.

It's not Lee McKenzie commentating. She's presenting. It's Claire Cottingham mentioning that this is the historic first race of the W series, with some actual race commentary occasionally thrown in.

Well that was a bit dull but I find most open wheel racing on big circuits dull to be honest. Commentary was awful, thank god DC started commentating more. I expect Jamie flat spotted the tyres so managed the pace. Back to Spa and the WEC.
