W Series ambassador and commentator Naomi Schiff has been named as one of five reserve drivers as the series prepares for season 2 which gets underway on Sunday 26 June forming part of the support races with Formula One at the Austrian Grand Prix. Schiff, who competed in season one of the W Series in 2019 is joined by fellow W Series veterans Caitlin Wood, Tasmin Pepper, and Gosia Rdest as well as rookie Abbi Pulling.
Speaking about the news, W Series Race Director Dave Ryan said:
Having a strong pool of drivers to call upon at each race is incredibly important as we manage all the uncertainties that come with running a motor racing championship during the ongoing pandemic. With this great squad of drivers available, we are confident that we can deal with whatever is thrown at us this season. We are delighted to be able to give these drivers – all of whom have proved themselves to be very competitive in W Series’ Tatuus T-318 Formula 3 race cars – invaluable racing experience as they continue to build their careers.
