Pioneering London-based squad reinforces commitment to gender equality with test outing for Norwegian protégé
Veloce Racing has added yet another rising female star to its roster in the form of Norweigian rallycross racer Hedda Hosås, as the London-based squad continues to position itself as a champion of gender equality. The pioneering motorsport organisation, which has been at the forefront of innovation in the industry since the team’s inception in 2019, has signed up the highly-rated youngster ahead of Extreme E’s rookie test (Tuesday, 26 October) in Sardinia, Italy.

The acquisition of Hosås reaffirms Veloce’s knack for identifying promising female drivers, which has proved fruitful in the past, while it also reinforces a stance on gender equality that has held true throughout the outfit’s endeavours both on and off the circuit for over two years.

Off the track, Veloce has hosted numerous events throughout 2021 such as Epsom College and Gravity Karting, Wandsworth appearances with the FIA Girls On Track initiative as well as ‘The Ultimate Female Racer’ challenge with sister organisation Veloce Esports, highlighting itself as a staunch advocate for women in motorsport.

On the track, meanwhile, Hosås is following in the footsteps of W Series Champion Jamie Chadwick, Brazilian sensation Bruna Tomaselli and the most recent female driver to get behind the wheel of Veloce machinery – Emma Gilmour – who impressed on her debut at the Arctic X Prix.

Having identified Chadwick as a future superstar while under a previous commercial management guise – Veloce Sports – the SW6 squad has a history of spotting, developing and promoting the best female talent in motorsport so Hosås is in good company.

The newly-signed Norwegian sensation’s early career comprised largely of motocross competition before making the transition to rallycross. More recently, she has been competing in the Norwegian Rallycross Championship and made a guest appearance in the Danish championship in September.

Hosås will be joined at the rookie test by Veloce Racing’s male Reserve and Development Driver Lance Woolridge who will relish the opportunity to test the ODYSSEY 21 on an official X Prix course for the first time.

Hedda Hosås, Rookie Driver, Veloce Racing added: “I’m really excited to be getting involved in Extreme E. It’s going to be an entirely new experience as I have been driving in rallycross so far. The car is much bigger in terms of size so that will take some getting used to, but I think it’s really cool that it is electric – that is the future! I can’t wait and feel very lucky that I’ve been given this opportunity.

“I’m looking forward to seeing how the series works. Of course, it’s going to be interesting to see the area and understand the environmental impacts as well as try out the electric power train. Overall, I think It’s going to be a great experience!”

Rupert Svendsen-Cook, Team Principal, Veloce Racing added: “Veloce is proudly committed to developing and promoting the very best female talent in motorsport, with the addition of Hedda being testament to that, alongside what we have achieved with Jamie Chadwick in both the W Series and Extreme E.

“The challenges of Extreme E are particularly unique, with very limited mileage a key factor in some teams choosing to sign more experienced ‘mature’ talent. As a future-facing company here at Veloce, we believe the strategy to invest in younger and upcoming talent to be the right one. We are excited to offer Hedda this opportunity and to work towards success on the global motorsport stage together.”

It is no mystery that the advancement of the internet has facilitated the rise of several industries, with the online gambling industry serving as one of the finest examples. This is unsurprising to the majority, as we live in an age where digital technology is constantly evolving. Due to the proliferation of online casinos, the gaming environment in Europe is undergoing a rapid transformation. Today, more individuals prefer to bet online rather than in traditional casinos.

This tendency is most prominent in Europe, where many nations now regulate and legalize internet gambling. Moreover, with the onset of modern technologies such as blockchain, which has allowed Bitcoin bookies and gamblers to access casinos with altcoins, making it safer and faster, it is fascinating to witness how the market is shaping up.

What trends are emerging in the online casino industry in Europe?

Some of the latest trends in the online casino industry in Europe include the rise of mobile gaming, the popularity of live dealer games, and the growth of social casinos. Mobile gaming is becoming increasingly popular as more and more people own smartphones and tablets. Live dealer games are also growing in popularity as they offer a more realistic and immersive experience. Social casinos are also becoming more popular as they allow players to interact with each other and compete for prizes.

  • There are numerous reasons why internet gambling in Europe is growing in popularity. It is significantly more handy than traveling to a physical casino. Using a mobile casino app, you may bet from the comfort of your own home or even on the go.
  • Another reason internet gambling is so prevalent is that there are now many more possibilities than in the past. In the past, most gamblers were restricted to land-based casinos with a limited number of games. Today, however, there are countless online casinos to pick from, each with its own distinct game selection. Therefore, regardless of your gambling preferences, you can find an online casino that suits you.
  • The improving safety and security of internet gambling in Europe is a further element contributing to its growing popularity. In the past, there were concerns over the security of internet gambling. But technological advancements and increasing government regulation have mostly remedied these worries. Nowadays, online gambling is safer than land-based casinos.

All factors considered, it is not surprising that online gambling is gaining popularity in Europe. Due to its convenience, variety, and security, an increasing number of consumers prefer online gambling to traditional brick-and-mortar casinos.

The impact of technology on online gambling in Europe

The impact of technology on online gambling in Europe is significant. Online gambling is a rapidly growing industry, and technology has played a significant role in its growth. The availability of online gambling services has made it easier for people to gamble, and mobile devices have made it even more convenient.

Technology has also allowed the development of new gambling games and platforms, making online gambling even more popular. Furthermore, it has also enhanced security through blockchain, and with the combination of AI, not only is online casino more interesting but even more reliable and safe.

The future of online casino in Europe

The future of online casinos in Europe is looking very bright. With the recent legalization of online gambling in many European countries, more and more people are turning to the internet to play their favorite casino games. This trend is only expected to grow in the coming years as more and more people discover the convenience and fun of playing online.

A prominent reason why online gambling is growing in popularity is that it is becoming increasingly safe and secure. With the latest advances in technology, online casinos can now offer their players a very high level of security, ensuring that their personal and financial information is always safe.

So what does the future hold for online gambling in Europe? It looks like it will continue to grow rapidly, with more and more people discovering its many benefits.
