“I’m excited to have this opportunity to drive a more open-wheel style car on a street/road circuit again, and I’m grateful to Formula E for creating this opportunity for female racers — and for doing it the right way without segregating us,” Mann said. “As a result there’s a serious list of female talent on the list for this test, and I’m honored my name is now on there too.”
With Saudi Arabia’s recent decision to allow women to drive, the local promoter has worked with teams with the stated goal of encouraging more female participation. 2018 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship GT Daytona runner-up Katherine Legge and Sauber test driver Tatiana Calderon are among those scheduled to take part.
