F1 Academy

F1 Academy is a new all-women driver category which will race for the first time in 2023.

The series will help accelerate the progress of women in the junior ranks and aid their promotion to the higher levels of single seater racing such as W Series, F3, F2 and F1.

15 drivers run by five of the most established teams in junior motorsport will compete in seven events in season one. Each event will feature three races, making track time and race practice one of the most appealing features for drivers in F1 Academy.

Abbi Pulling, Jessica Edgar and Megan Gilkes make up Rodin Carlin's 2023 line-up.
