Lorina McLaughlin and The FORCE are on their way to Barcelona for the biggest event of the year – supporting the Spanish Grand Prix.

Following a successful shakedown at Donington over the weekend, after an oil pressure problem had been solved, Lorina will be taking to the track at Barcelona for three high-speed demos.

Visitors to the picturesque Spanish city on Wednesday will also be able to admire the ex-Michael Schumacher Benetton B192 close-up, as it will be on show on the Passeig di Gracia, one of city’s most famous streets. A media presentation will be held at the Palau Robert at the top of the street, starting at noon. Three of The FORCE’s cars will be on display.

Demonstration times at the circuit are as follows:
Thursday 3pm
Friday 10:10am
Saturday 11:10am

Sunday is a day off. Lorina and the team are set to enjoy an access-all-areas visit to the race itself – look out for her on your TV screens in case she decides to go for a grid walk!

Lorina McLaughlin
is prepared
for anything the
Donington Historic Festival
has to throw at her…

The BWRDC President has tested her ex-Michael Schumacher Benetton B192 for the first time since its winter overhaul. Her Monday session at Donington proved to be an all-weather test, with heavy rain, sunshine, hail and even snow making an appearance in the space of a single lap. Although she prefers a dry track, Lorina is now prepared for all eventualities at the Historic Festival in May and anything other than weather chaos will be water off a duck’s back.

The car has had a thorough rebuild since its last outing at Jarama in October, including extensive work to the exhaust and the fitting of a new bag tank. Lorina has pronounced herself satisfied with the way the car is running after the test – “nothing fell off it!”

The Benetton will be doing high-speed demonstration laps at the Festival with Lorina at the wheel, alongside some of the other big single-seaters from the Force stable.

W Series, which will use Tatuus F3-spec cars, has backing from 13-time F1 race winner David Coulthard and will have a prize pot totalling $1.5million.

The winner of the category will earn $500,000 to help fund her next step up the racing ladder to F1.

The six-round W Series will launch in May 2019 and feature 30-minute races in Europe, with one round to be held in the UK. Expansion in Australia, Asia and the Americas is expected longer-term.
