The W Series announced it will end its season early due to financial difficulties, making Britain’s Jamie Chadwick champion for the third time.

The announcement, which was made on Monday, 10 October 2022, stated that the series ended three races earlier following a loss of a key investor meaning it will not support the Formula 1 US and Mexico City Grands Prix.

The decision was also made to focus on the longer-term fundraising process to enable the longevity and financial health for W Series into 2023 and beyond.

W Series Chief Executive Officer Catherine Bond Muir said: “It’s with both great sadness and frustration that we announce the our much anticipated final three races of the 2022 season in Austin and Mexico City will not go ahead. As a start up in only our third season of racing, we are always working hard to ensure regularity of funding as we continue to grow our business, but due to recent unforeseen circumstances outside of W Series’ control, we had not been in receipt of contracted funds due to us.

“Therefore we have been forced to make the unfortunate decision not to complete our scheduled calendar this season. We would like to thank both Circuit of the Americas and Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez’s Grupo CIE for their support as promoters of our events in Austin and Mexico City respectively, and apologise to both them and our fans that we will not be able to go racing there this year.”

Muir concluded: “Finally, I want to extend a huge congratulation to our triple- champion Jamie Chadwick. She has dominated the 2022 W Series and this championship is well-deserved. We have been and always will be incredibly proud and supportive of her career and wish her well in her next exciting chapter. To all our W Series drivers, I’d like to express both pride and sincere gratitude for your professionalism and talent, providing entertaining and exciting racing all season long, and for your continually unwavering support as we navigate the steps for our series.

“We will always work hard to provide women racing drivers the opportunities to achieve success and we will not stop fighting to continue the work W Series has started to support women in motorsport.”
