When Caitlyn Jenner was announced by W Series as a Team Owner in the all-female regional Formula 3 series, most people were shocked. Jenner Racing, as the team is called, made a star signing with Jamie Chadwick, who will enter her third year in the series in 2022. Will the American media personality add something to W Series?
