W Series, the all-new international single-seater racing championship for female drivers only, has announced an all-star TV presentation team, comprising a blend of experience, enthusiasm and expertise, to bring the excitement and thrills of this unique series to viewers around the globe.
Anchoring the team is one of the UK’s most recognised sports presenters, Lee McKenzie, who is best known to motorsport fans for her key role in Channel 4’s coverage of Formula 1. “It’s a huge pleasure to be involved at the start of W Series,” said Lee. “I’ve covered almost every series of motorsport and to be involved in one that could also change the face of the sport as we know it is really exciting.”
Specialist motor racing TV and radio broadcaster and commentator, Claire Cottingham, will be W Series’ lead race commentator. She said that she was “thrilled to be part of this incredible and ground-breaking team, being one of the first female commentators in motorsport.”
Alongside her in the commentary box will be David Coulthard, sharing co-commentating duties with further guest co-commentators who are yet to be announced. A 13-time Grand Prix winner, David said he was “absolutely delighted to be playing a key role within W Series – not only as a member of the series’ management but also now as part of the TV commentary team.”
Ted Kravitz will be W Series’ pit-lane reporter, a role that he has perfected over numerous years in Formula 1, and which has endeared him to fans around the globe. Further announcements will be made in due course as the W Series presentation team evolves to include guest contributors, celebrities and motorsport personalities.
