Zinc’s senior staff members, Sandie and Lanna were thrilled to be invited to the legendary Brands Hatch circuit yesterday for the final race in the 2019 W Series championship. The event was the culmination of the ground-breaking inaugural season and having been involved with the team behind it since the early days, our Zinc ladies were delighted to see how it all came together and experience the sights, sounds and smells of race day.
In the end, 21-year-old Jamie Chadwick (UK) won this first ever single-seater series for female drivers only. After six great races she converted her championship lead into a championship victory.
At a time when most other female sports are growing exponentially, there are, in real terms, fewer women racing single-seater cars at the higher levels now than there were 10 years ago. W Series will act as a catalyst for that change.
