“Only 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,” commented Wadoux. “It had been a big part of my career because I suddenly found myself driving a prototype.

“I learned a whole lot and now I’ve a fresh opportunity with a fresh test, but this time around at the tyre of a Hypercar. It is a dream become a reality and I’m delighted.

“On an individual level, I’m proud showing that women can reach the best degree of motorsport. I am hoping that my example will inspire girls to check out this path.
