Dec 14, 2018

W Series names long-list of drivers set to fight for a place on the final grid and Shea Holbrook, Lamborghini Super Trofeo driver is on that list.

“I’m honored to be one of the drivers selected to move forward to the final qualifiers in late January. This is a tremendous opportunity and one I’m humbled to be a part of,” said Holbrook.

W Series, the all-female championship set to go racing in 2019, has announced a long-list of more than 50 drivers who will compete for a place on the grid of 18 when the season kicks off in May next year.

The qualifying drivers were carefully selected from a pool of more than 100 applicants from 30 countries around the world, including the USA, China and India as well as the UK, Italy, Germany and Scandinavia.

Holbrook and the other 54 drivers will now have just two months to prepare for the next step in the selection process – a three-day on-and-off-track trial including fitness tests and psychometric profiling, as well as multiple driving skill tests.
