Misano W Series: Chadwick fends off Visser to win

Jun 8, 2019, 3:06 PM

Jamie Chadwick took victory in the third round of the inaugural W Series season at Misano, extending her championship lead over second-placed Beitske Visser.

Chadwick took her second win of the season having led the race from start to finish, successfully holding off several attempts by Zolder winner Visser and crossed the line 0.5 seconds ahead of her title rival.

The newly-announced Williams Formula 1 development driver had lined up on the grid in second, but took the lead from polesitter Fabienne Wohlwend as soon as the lights went out.

Visser also managed to get the jump on Wohlwend at the start, with Wohlwend dropping back to third and tagging the car of Alice Powell as the field made its way through the first chicane.

Powell’s car was tipped briefly airborne in the clash - which was deemed a racing incident after a stewards' investigation - and came to rest in the gravel, triggering a safety car.

Chadwick, Visser and Wohlwend all held onto their respective positions at the restart, the leading trio extending a gap over the rest of the pack and ultimately finishing in that order.

Home favourite Vicky Piria initially held onto her grid slot of fourth, but was overtaken on the penultimate straight by Miki Koyama, who scored her best W Series finish.

Sixth position went to Marta Garcia ahead of Tasmin Pepper who was seventh.

Sabre Cook starred with an impressive drive from 15th on the grid to finish in eighth place, having duelled with Sarah Moore throughout the race and ultimately completing a successful overtake on the final lap.

Moore was ninth with reserve driver Vivien Keszthelyi - racing in place of the injured Emma Kimilainen - completing the top 10.
