Kimilainen top again in second Brands Hatch W Series practice

Saturday, August 10 2019

Finland's Emma Kimilainen topped the W Series order for a second practice session in a row this afternoon after lapping the Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit almost three tenths faster than Britain's Alice Powell. 

Jamie Chadwick completed the top-three ahead of her title challenge tomorrow in the revolutionary, all-female single-seater series. Chadwick heads into the event as the favourite to make history and claim the maiden W Series crown, and third place in the race tomorrow would be enough for her to seal the title. 

Chadwick's only title rival, the Netherlands' Beitske Visser, only set the seventh fastest time in the afternoon session, improving on her morning performance, but she'll still need to climb further up the order to trrouble Chadwick tomorrow. 

Japanese racer Miki Koyama was fourth fastest, just ahead of Jessica Hawkins who completed a strong day on home soil.
