You always have to drive against male racing cars. Now, two Swiss women are starting in the new women's series.
At the time of his establishment there were some criticisms, even of female contestants. However, the new women's championships "W Series" have been interrupted by the interested drivers!
Women over 100 horsepower want to be there. 55 are now on the list of candidates who will drive next year at the premiere of a women's series of one of the 18 unit formulas of 3 cars.
Including two Swiss women. Marylin Niederhauser (23) from Kehrsatz BE and Sharon Scolari (23) from Biasca TI are our strengths for Formula W. Beside Fabienne Wohlwend (21), among them is the fastest Liechtenstein girl.
Two Swiss women are also attracted to the financial side: Participation is free – even travel expenses are charged.
Niederhauser has already drove Formula 4, GT4 is a vice champion and says: "It's a huge opportunity to have a budget without the need to ride a Formula 3 car! I also like the idea of a woman because it's something new. It's always been in football or skiing. "
The eternal fight for the budget season falls. Obviously, organizers want to pay about 1.5 million Swiss francs to former Formula One star David Coulthard.
Are you threatening Zickenkrieg?
Scolari: "In racing, men are usually more likely to succeed, so women need help." The engineering team engineer Ticino has completed his first year at Formula Renault 2018 in the overall 11th place: "Bio I would dream of becoming a professional. "
Marylin, secretary of the real estate industry, dreams about it – her co-owner Patric Niederhauser (27) for years has been a racing professional (GP3, Le Mans, GT-Sport). Sharon is married downhill for mountain biking.
Now the power store wants to beat other women. Is there a big feeling or threat to a cat fight? Marylin laughs and says, "On the track, that makes no sense, he never has a colleague, but I do not expect any problems next to the track."
But first Marylin and Sharon must survive the next election in January.
