CHADWICK DURING THE CHAMPAGNE SPRAYING CELEBRATIONS STORY: Britain's Jamie Chadwick was crowned first champion of the all-female W Series on Sunday (August 11), and collected a $500,000 prize, after finishing fourth in the season's final race at Brands Hatch, UK.

The 21-year-old had started from pole position in front of her home crowd as clear favourite, 13 points clear of Dutch title rival Beitske Visser who lined up fifth, but she made hard work of it.

Compatriot Alice Powell ripped up Chadwick's script of a comfortable pole-to-flag win by seizing her first victory of the six race campaign while Finland's Emma Kimilainen took second place.

Visser had needed to win to have any real chance, unless Chadwick failed to finish, and although she overtook the Briton for third in the closing stages she had to settle for overall runner-up and a $250,000 payout.

The champion ended up with 110 points to Visser's 100.

Powell was third overall on 76.

Chadwick, who had stood on the podium in the five previous races, had led cleanly from the start but then suffered her worst afternoon of the season, dropping back down the field.

The W Series, which uses identical 1.8 litre Formula Three cars, aims to help female racers climb the male-dominated motorsport ladder towards Formula One, which last saw a woman start a race in 1976.
