W SERIES CHAMPION JAMIE CHADWICK FEELING A MILLION DOLLARS
Double W Series champion Jamie Chadwick is all smiles after being presented with her 2021 championship trophy and cheque for $500,000 at our London headquarters.
The 23-year-old Briton successfully defended her W Series title following a nail-biting finale to the 2021 season at the Circuit of the Americas, Austin, Texas, USA, last October to make her a dollar millionaire. COVID-19 restrictions meant Jamie could not be formally presented with the championship trophy at a Gala Dinner at the end of last year – as was the case following W Series’ inaugural season in 2019 – but CEO Catherine Bond Muir did the honours in London earlier this week when Jamie returned to the UK from winter training.
Four victories from eight races in 2021 – including two wins at the season-ending double header at COTA – saw Jamie hold off compatriot Alice Powell and scoop the $500,000 top prize. That takes Jamie’s total W Series earnings to $1million having collected the same prize money in 2019.
