The six-part documentary series will take viewers behind the scenes of the inaugural season of the female counterpart to F1.

W Series documentary, W Series: Driven, is set to be released on All 4 from 20 June.

The six-part documentary series follows the top female drivers as they are cut down from 54 to 18 to find the line-up for the inaugural W Series season. 

Beginning in Austria, the 54, which includes an F1 engineer, a Hollywood stunt driver, a plumber, a banker and two mums, go through three days of testing before half of them face elimination. When it gets down to the final 18, the show follows the drivers as they take part in the six races across Europe, hoping that at least one of them can go on to race in F1 - which hasn’t seen a female driver since 1976.

Catherine Bond Muir, CEO of W Series, said: “I am thrilled that as of Sunday 20 June W Series: Driven will be available in full. There is currently a great appetite – amongst motor racing fans and beyond – for behind-the-scenes motorsport action and Driven delivers all the excitement and drama of W Series’ inaugural season in six gripping episodes.

“It’s a brilliant recap of our journey thus far for existing fans and I am confident that with the platform provided by All 4 and our global broadcast partners we will reach an even greater and more diverse audience in the lead up to our first race in Austria.”
