19 February 2020, Whitley, United Kingdom:
Panasonic Jaguar Racing welcomes Jamie Chadwick as the first driver for the ABB FIA Formula E rookie test in Marrakesh on Sunday 1 March
The 21-year old Briton began racing go-karts at the age of 11 and her career has never looked back. At 17, she was the first woman and youngest driver to win the British GT Championship. In 2018, she became the first woman to win a British F3 race. Last February, she became the first female winner of the MRF Challenge series in Chennai.
In 2019, Chadwick joined the W Series, the first all-female single-seater championship. Asserting her skill and outright pace early on, Chadwick dominated the championship eventually lifting the trophy achieving 5 podiums from just 6 races.
Marrakesh Rookie Test, Jamie Chadwick
I’m thrilled to be joining the Panasonic Jaguar Racing team for the official rookie test event in Marrakesh. I’m a huge fan of Formula E and everything that it stands for so to be teaming up with this race winning outfit is an incredible opportunity. I can’t wait to get in the car and work closely with the team to have a successful test.
Rookie Test Driver
It is great to welcome Jamie on board as one of our rookie test drivers. After proving her ability on track during the W Series, we’re excited to see her step up and see what she can do in the Jaguar I-TYPE 4. She will bring us some critical insights for the development of the racecar and I’m looking forward to working with Jamie in Marrakesh.
Panasonic Jaguar Racing Team Director
The second rookie test driver for Panasonic Jaguar Racing will be announced ahead of the Marrakesh e-prix.
