Zolder, Belgium - Dutch driver Beitske Visser won the second race of the all-female W Series at Zolder in Belgium on Saturday with Britain's Jamie Chadwick retaining the overall lead after beating compatriot Alice Powell for second place.
South Africa’s Tasmin Pepper meanwhile enjoyed another competitive outing, finishing sixth after a frantic four car dice. This moved her up to seventh on the championship table. Pepper remarked on Twitter that she was very happy with the progress made so far and was keen to see what the next race at the Misano circuit in Italy has in store.
Jamie Chadwick, who was the inaugural winner in Hockenheim two weeks ago, had lined up on pole position for the Zolder race again, but former Red Bull junior driver Visser made the better start and stayed ahead through two safety car periods to win by 8.451 seconds.
Visser moved up to second overall, on 37 points and six behind Chadwick, in the series which uses identical Formula Three cars.
"They tried to make it hard for me but starting from P2 (second place), I had a perfect start," said Visser. "I think we did a perfect job today."
