Lilou Wadoux will ride in a Hypercar during the Rookie Test in Bahrain
The WEC announced on Friday the names of the drivers selected to participate in the Rookie Test the day after the last round of the season, on November 13 in Bahrain. Lilou Wadoux, a member of the Richard Mille Racing team this year, has been chosen to drive a Hypercar, either the Toyota GR010 or the Alpine A480 depending on the outcome of the duel for the world title between the two teams. She will be entitled to at least 30 laps in the titled car the day before.
“A dream that will come true”
“I am very happy to have been selectedcommented Wadoux. Barely a year ago, I took part in the Bahrain Rookie Test in LMP2 with Richard Mille, while I was racing in the Alpine Elf Europa Cup. It was a big step in my career, since I suddenly found myself behind the wheel of a prototype. I learned a lot. And there, a new opportunity is offered to me with new tests, but this time at the wheel of a Hypercar. It’s a dream that will come true. I am glad. And then, on a personal level, I’m quite proud to show that women can flourish at the highest level of motorsport. This proves that attitudes are moving in the right direction. I hope that my example will arouse some vocations among young girls. »
Another French pilot was chosen, Doriane Pin. She will be driving in an Oreca 07 in the LMP2 category. In GTE Pro, it will be Lorenzo Colombo and in GTE Am Finn Gehrsitz.
