A spin by Miki Koyama at the entry to Sheene Curve brought out the Safety Car, which closed up the pack.

But she was under constant pressure from compatriot and eventual race-winner Alice Powell and Finland's Emma Kimilainen, who passed her on successive corners. By the time Visser, the only person who could deprive Chadwick of the title, pulled off the deftest pass to relegate her from the podium places, pre-race nerves threatened to give way to full-blown panic.

That put Visser on Chadwick's tail and the Dutchwoman overtook her with three minutes left after a breathtaking passage of wheel-to-wheel action during which the pair made contact.

The race for third was between Chadwick and championship rival Beitske Visser.

The race came alive as Powell attacked on the inside at turn one.

Chadwick has won previously in the British GT and is an MRF Challenge champions but cemented herself at the inaugural W Series season. "It'll sink in soon I'm sure, but it hasn't yet", said Chadwick.

Finishing in the top 12 for the overall championship is significant, as those drivers receive an automatic invitation to return for the 2020 W Series competition.

"This year has been a whirlwind, and today's race was more intense than any other racing day I've ever had".

"I felt good in the beginning and I knew I had the championship to fight for, and these guys had nothing to lose", she added. Even though I finished only fourth, I was just so happy finally to cross the line and secure the championship. "F1 is the dream of every young driver", she says.Earlier this year Chadwick was taken on by the Williams F1 team as part of their junior driver programme, which she says is the first proper step in fulfilling her ambition.

"I think a lot of people have started to change their minds about it and see it for what it is and what the W Series are trying to do".

'I definitely didn't make that easy for myself but, fingers crossed, we can take this on to bigger things'.

"The crowd has been incredible today and that's a huge credit to the way W Series has promoted us drivers".
