The former Olympic gold medal winner Caitlyn Jenner shares her thoughts on joining the W Series as team principal and owner of Jenner Racing.
The news might have surprised many people, but Jenner is no stranger to motorsport as she first competed as a racing driver in the 1980s professionally.
Continuing her passion for the sport, Jenner believes that her involvement in the series could help women to break the boundaries by giving them opportunities to contend in the so-called man’s world.
Jenner stated, “As a believer in fair competition, a lover of motor racing, and a supporter of all women in sport from the grassroots to elite level, W Series ticks every box for me and is a fusion of the different aspects of my career.”
“A championship dedicated to inspiring young girls and giving women the chance to succeed in roles throughout what has traditionally been a male-dominated industry, W Series is changing the face of motorsport.”
Her goal is always to open more opportunities for female drivers to drive in Formula One by creating a platform for them in the sport as she aims to reach out to more viewers.
With the 2022 season starting in May, the gold team is ready to compete with the double champion Jamie Chadwick and the soon-to-be-announced driver alongside the inaugural Miami Formula One Grand Prix.
“As the series continues its rapid expansion with a truly international cast of drivers and races, this was the perfect time to come on board. W Series had a global reach of more than half a billion viewers in 2021, and I am going out to the market to acquire sponsors that align with mine and W Series’ joint missions.”
