F1 Academy has announced a seven-round calendar for the 2024 season, with every event featuring on the Formula 1 support bill.

Following on from this year’s inaugural season, the all-women series’ second campaign will begin in Saudi Arabia on March 7 and finish in Abu Dhabi on December 8.

In addition to the hosts of the opening and closing rounds, Miami, Qatar, and Singapore will all join the calendar for the first time, with Zandvoort and Barcelona returning for a second year.

The calendar has been designed to span three continents – Europe, Asia and North America – and will feature a mix of street circuits and traditional circuits, with the racing to be supplemented by an extensive official testing calendar that will be announced in due course.

The announcement follows news last month that F1 Academy will be supported by all 10 F1 teams, who will each provide a driver to the series and have their livery on one car.

“I am delighted to announce our seven-round season for 2024,” said Susie Wolff, Managing Director of F1 Academy. “This calendar cements our ambition to become a truly global series, expanding our reach and improving visibility for our mission.
