|Beitske Visser extended her lead at the top of the W Series Esports League by winning two of the three races in round two at Circuit of the Americas, Austin, Texas, USA.
Just as she did a week ago at Autodromo Nazionale di Monza, Italy, the 25-year-old Dutch driver won races one and three at COTA. In between those victories, Beitske came from last to sixth in the reverse-grid race which, in another repeat of round one, was won by Finland’s Emma Kimiläinen, 30.
A bonus point for setting the fastest lap in the third race meant Beitske earned 51 points in Austin, giving her a W Series Esports League total of 100 and a 14-point lead over Irina Sidorkova in the League table. The 16-year-old Russian was the second-highest scorer in round two by finishing eighth, second and third for a total of 40 points, one more than Alice Powell. The Briton leapt from 10th in the League table after round one to third thanks to third-placed finishes in the opening two races at COTA and an eighth-placed finish in the final race. The 27-year-old added a bonus point for the fastest lap in race one.
Alice trails Irina by 28 points in the League table and leads fourth-placed Nerea Marti by a single point. Caitlin Wood is one point further back in fifth. The 23-year-old Australian scored 36 points at COTA by finishing fourth, 10th and second.
