Why a sabbatical doesn't spell disaster for W Series

By:

W Series finally got off the ground in 2019 despite its critics and had expected to build on its momentum this season. Instead the COVID-19 crisis has put its plans on hold, but for the fledgling series it could prove a blessing in disguise

On the surface, facing nearly a 20-month break after just six races seems pretty disastrous for a newly-founded series.

During its short debut season, W Series did much to silence its critics, capitalising on its own controversial nature to draw publicity and provided some spectacular racing to boot. But the general verdict was that W Series' second season would be the true test of its success, where it would have to prove that its approach to racing is sustainable and its achievements no flash in the pan.
