The rational brain of W Series' outside title bet

As the only mum in W Series, Emma Kimilainen has a different perspective than many of her rivals. After her swashbuckling drive to victory at a sodden Spa, the Finn now has a real chance of getting into the title fight, and can call on an approach that has been a boost through myriad past disappointments

Emma Kimilainen was unable to show her full potential in W Series in 2019, as a neck injury following round one contact with Megan Gilkes forced her to sit out the next two rounds and effectively ended her title hopes before a lap of racing had been completed.

But after charging to victory in the championship's most recent round at Spa last weekend, the Finn is threatening to disrupt the established pecking order and having thrown her hat into the ring, says anything could happen over the remaining three races.
