NEXT RACE: August 11 2019
Born in Bath, Jamie Chadwick spent her first years in the Isle of Man, before moving to Gloucestershire, where she attended Cheltenham College, and now lives, near Tetbury.
Her interest in racing began in 2010 when she started karting, aged 11, achieving numerous wins and podiums at club level in the Junior series.
She was given a huge boost in 2012 by winning the 2013 Ginetta Junior Scholarship, beating more than 60 other young racers in a range of disciplines involving racing, fitness and media skills. This funded Jamie’s 2013 season in the highly competitive Ginetta Junior Championship, part of the hugely popular British Touring Cars support package. In 2014 Jamie again competed in the Ginetta Junior Championship achieving regular front running performances and podiums.
2015 was a great year for Jamie – moving up to the senior categories and signing to race an Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GT4 with Beechdean Motorsport. Together with her teammate Ross Gunn, they secured the British GT Championship GT4 title in their first year – Jamie being the youngest driver and first female to win a British GT Championship. She was also selected to be part of the Aston Martin Racing Driver Evolution Academy and invited by the British Racing Drivers’ Club to become a ‘Rising Star’.
The following year, Jamie’s A-level studies took priority, but she still found time to compete in five rounds of British GT. This included three rounds with The Great British Bake Off’s Paul Hollywood in the Pro-Am Class, again driving the Beechdean Aston Martin GT4 race car. Her relationship with Aston Martin also enabled her to gain her Nordschleife Race Permit, competing in three VLN races at the challenging Nurburgring circuit.
In 2017 Jamie made the much coveted switch to singles-seaters, signing for championship winning team Double R Racing to compete in the British Formula 3 Championship. She opened her account with a podium at Rockingham and finished 9th in the Championship in her rookie year.
For 2018 Jamie has a busy schedule combining another season in British F3, this time with Douglas Motorsport, with some selected GT/Endurance events in Europe with Aston Martin. She also tested a US F2000 car at Miami Homestead in February, with a view to some racing in America later in the year.
Alongside her racing, Jamie has a deep-rooted knowledge and enthusiasm for all motor racing and has worked closely with the media – BBC, Sky Sport, BT Sport and Hayfisher. She has also been recognised by the Motor Sports Association and invited to be part of their national squad – the MSA Academy.READ MORE
