Britain’s Jamie Chadwick won the opening race of the new W Series all-female championship season in Miami. Chadwick lost and re-took the lead in a competitive and incident-packed race. Marta García from Spain took second and Britain’s Jessica Hawkins, who is a driver ambassador for the Aston Martin F1 team, was third at the Miami International Autodrome.
Chadwick is the defending W Series champion, having won the series’ first two seasons but had to work hard to win on her first outing this year. The 23-year-old is racing this season for the team backed by former Olympian Caitlyn Jenner and has opened her third season with a strong statement of intent. “That was a bizarre race, I don’t know what happened but we will take that,” she said afterwards.
