I like to call Jamie Chadwick the Queen of the W Series, and it’s easy to see why. Not only did she win the inaugural season in 2019, but she also won again in 2021 after finishing second in 2020 to Courtney Thompson, making her the only driver to win back-to-back titles so far. Not only that, but she holds a record of four wins, eight podiums and three pole positions, not to mention 33 points scored – by far the most ever scored by any W Series driver. I had the opportunity to interview her before Round 4 of Season 2, which you can see below! Jamie Laura Chadwick: The Queen of the W Series
