THE Vertu-owned Bristol Street Motors dealer group is launching its own W Series race team, called Click2Drive Bristol Street Motors Racing.

Bristol Street Motors’ new team and continued partnership with the W Series international single-seater championship for female drivers, includes the support of their buy online technology, Click2Drive.

The launch of the W Series race team coincides with the brand’s new #TypicalWomanDriver campaign, which highlights the skills and significance that women drivers play in society, from ambulance drivers and other blue-light first responders to lorry drivers and air force pilots.

Click2Drive Bristol Street Motors Racing will participate in the W Series 2022 season and has already signed its first driver, Alice Powell. Considered a female pioneer in motorsport, Alice was the first woman to win a Formula Renault championship in 2010 and, two years later, became the first woman to score points in the GP3 Series. Additionally, she has secured multiple race wins across the first two W Series seasons, finishing overall third and second in 2019 and 2021 respectively.

Leasing broker Vansdirect is part of the Vertu group.
