F1 Academy has announced that the final round of the current season will be broadcast live in over 100 territories.

The all-female racing category was launched earlier this year with direct support from Formula 1.

The aim of the series is to provide women with a step into single-seater racing before progressing further up the competitive ladder.

Six rounds of the category have already been held with the finale set to take place later this month at the Circuit of the Americas, providing support for the US Grand Prix.

Spaniard Marta Garcia holds the lead in the championship over Lena Buhler.

For the round at COTA, fans across all regions can watch both qualifying sessions plus all three races live on F1’s YouTube, X and Facebook channels.

It will also be shown on F1 TV, while a number of broadcasters will show the coverage live on their networks.

“I’ve always said, ‘you have to see it to believe it’ and there is nothing more powerful than racing globally alongside F1,” said Susie Wolff, Managing Director of F1 Academy.

“I would like to thank our broadcast partners for their support and commitment to bring F1 Academy to existing audiences and a new generation of fans around the world.

“We hope to inspire young girls and women at home and show them the possibilities in our sport, both on and off-track”.
