ABOUT JAMIE

Jamie Chadwick, 23, was born in Bath and spent the early years of her life in the Isle of Man, before her family moved to Gloucestershire, where she won a Sports Scholarship to attend Cheltenham College.


2010-2012

Jamie’s interest in motor racing began in 2010, aged 11, after watching her older brother, Ollie, compete in Karting. She was invited to test a Cadet Kart and she immediately impressed with her smooth style and technical interest, eventually competing in Junior Rotax at ‘Club’ level and achieving regular wins and podiums.


2013-2014

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 driving, fitness and media skills. This funded Jamies 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, against up-and-coming racers such as Lando Norris, and achieving regular front running performances and podiums.


2015

2015 was another significant 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 ever win a British GT Championship. She was also selected to be part of the Aston Martin Racing Driver Evolution Academy and invited to become a ‘Rising Star’ by the British Racing Drivers Club.


2016

The following year, Jamies 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 Offs 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 successfully in three VLN races at the challenging Nurburgring Circuit.


2017

In 2017 Jamie made the much-coveted switch to single-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 what was her ‘rookie’ year.


2018

In 2018, Jamie completed a busy season in British F3, this time with Douglas Motorsport, plus some selected GT-Endurance events in Europe with Aston Martin Racing. Jamie also made headlines when she became the first ever female driver to win a British F3 race by achieving a superb victory at Brands Hatch.


2019

2019 was a blockbuster year for Jamie as she became the first ever female winner of the Asian MRF F3 title, signed with Williams F1 as a development driver, was class co-winner of the annual ADAC Total Nurburgring 24 Hour Race with Aston Martin Racing and, in August, was crowned the inaugural Champion in the all new W Series.


2020

Like all athletes, 2020 was a restricted year for Jamie, due to the global COVID pandemic. However, she did still manage to compete in Asian F3 with Absolute Racing, achieving several podiums, including two wins, and finishing fourth in the Championship. She also finished on the podium in the Formula Regional European Championship with Prema, continued her development role with Williams F1, and tested with the Jaguar Formula E team.


2021

In 2021, Jamie returned to the W Series to defend her crown. After a nail-biting season that went down to the last race of the championship at the US Grand Prix in Austin,Texas, Jamie stormed home with an impressive drive that saw her lead from start to finish to become the two-time W Series Champion. 2021 also saw Jamie compete for Veloce in Extreme E. Balancing her W Series commitments, Jamie competed in three of the five races, picking up a podium and valuable points for the Veloce team. She was also invited to drive the Keke Rosberg World Championship Winning Williams FW08 F1 car at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. 

 

Media & Commercial Work

Alongside her diverse racing experience, Jamie has a deep-rooted knowledge and enthusiasm for all motor sport and has worked closely with the media – BBC, ITV, Sky Sport, BT Sport and Hayfisher. She has been recognised by the Motor Sports Association and was part of their national squad – the MSA Academy, as well as receiving numerous awards for her achievements.
