ROKiT Williams Racing is pleased to announce that Jamie Chadwick will continue her work as Development Driver within the team’s driver academy for 2020.
Jamie, 21, claimed the inaugural W Series title last year, and enjoyed further success driving in a class winning team at the Nürburgring 24 Hour Race in Germany. Prior to this, she claimed the 2015 British GT GT4 title, became a British Formula 3 race winner in 2018, and won the MRF Winter Series in 2018/19 - all historic firsts for a female racing driver.
