F1 Academy - Wrong Again

Marta Garcia
Marta Garcia - F1 Academy Champion from wikipedia

I was wrong. Again. I was a big fan of the W series, which featured all women racers in outdated formula 3 cars. However, the racers were never able to move on to higher levels of racing. The three-time champion did finally move to Indy Lights, but without much financial support from the series.

This year, that series was replaced by the F1 Academy. Again, all women, but this time in current formula 4 cars, and no TV coverage. I didn’t have much hope for its success, but I was wrong. Marta Garcia, the series champion, already has a deal for next year’s Formula Regional Europe series, with one of the top teams.
