The racing community is very male-oriented, it's in places somewhat old-school. It's often pit-babes, pin-up girls, picking up a hot babe for a ride and so on. It's not the place you'd feel right at home if you are gay and just looking to start with cars. I've seen people being left alone after the rumours started that they were bi/gay. No-one wanted to hang with them at the track, as they didn't want to be seen as "that way" themselves.
Males simply prefer to stick with other males so can they talk about pit babes in peace without being lectured.
I doubt I'd get a very different reaction if I were to join some pilates/yoga or whatever girls like to do when they are together... I really fail to see the problem in this.
It is ALWAYS hard to join a community with a different background than our own.. be that gender, politics, hobby, age you name it. It's hard and requires being humble and aware of who we are and put in the necessary work in order to be accepted and liked.
This idea that any random dude/girl has the right to walk in an established community and start to diss it because they don't behave/think/talk they way he/she wants is beyond comical.
So, once again.. there is absolutely nothing wrong in a series designed for women.. I actually think it's a great way to trigger some by-standers to join the crowd, it'd be a great thing for simracing.. BUT.. I also believe this can be achieved without shitting on the entire community.
