Chadwick joins Generation AMR SuperRacing in British GT

Sunday, April 10, 2016

Jamie Chadwick, 17, BRDC “Rising Star”, first female and youngest ever winner of a British GT Championship title, has announced she will drive the SuperRacing Aston Martin Vantage GT4 in the first two rounds of the 2016 British GT Series. She will stand-in for SuperRacing regular, James Holder, who has business commitments that rule him out of Brands Hatch on the 16-17thApril and Rockingham on 30th April – 1st May. She’ll line up alongside newcomer Matt George.

This follows hot on the heels of a successful BRDC F3 single-seater test with Hillspeed at Snetterton on Friday 8 April 2016.

“It’s certainly turning into a busier year than I expected”, said Jamie. “This year I’ve got my A-Levels, so I had planned to limit my racing over the first half of the season, prior to linking up with Paul Hollywood and the Beechdean Aston Martin Team for the final three rounds of British GT. However, when the opportunity arose to join the guys at SuperRacing, for the first two rounds, I couldn’t really refuse.”

James Appleby, Team Principal of Generation AMR SuperRacing said,”It’s great to have Jamie playing the role of super sub for James at the first two rounds of British GT’s this season. She knows the car well and has a great can do attitude that has worked really well with us all so far. I am excited to see how Matthew and Jamie get on as a pairing”

The SuperRacing news follows the recent announcement that Jamie has been chosen to co-drive in the last three rounds of this year’s British GT4 Championship with BBC ‘Bake Off’ star Paul Hollywood for the Beechdean Aston Martin Racing team. The duo is set to race at Spa Francorchamps on 8-9th July, Snetterton on 6-7th August and Donington Park on 10-11th September.
