The two-time W Series champion is back to defend her title in 2022 as Jamie Chadwick joins Jenner Racing.
Caitlin Jenner announced earlier this month that she would be joining the W Series with her team Jenner Racing. The driver line-up at the time was unknown but the team’s first driver has been announced today.
Jamie Chadwick will be back to defend her title as she joins Jenner’s team.
Chadwick’s career in W Series has been success after success. She was crowned the champion of the inaugural season and last year she defended her title with six race wins and 12 podiums out of the 14 races.
Alongside her racing, she is a development driver for the Williams Formula 1 team. Her career is an inspiration to young women within motorsport and it will be exciting to the Brit back on track.
Chadwick has said she is:
“Really excited to be returning to W Series.”
She added that when asked to return by Jenner Racing she “didn’t think twice”.
Jenner has experience being a racing driver herself and combined with her history of being an Olympic champion, she knows how to excel in elite sport.
Chadwick said that herself and the team are both “focused on doing all [they] can to win title number three”. She is confident in Jenner’s ability and her vision for the team, which is “amazing”.
2022 is a big year for Chadwick as she plans to “run a supporting racing programme” alongside her racing career. She also aims to enter Formula Three and Formula Two in the future but for now, the W series opportunity “is a key step” on her journey towards F1.
The season starts in May at the Miami Grand Prix – a brand-new track – and Chadwick is looking forward to getting more “competitive experience at world-class circuits”.
Catherine Bond Muir, Chief Executive Officer of W Series, has said she “can’t wait to watch” Chadwick race. She added that “Jamie is an exceptional talent” and the series is “delighted” Chadwick is returning.
Chadwick has helped “elevate the profile of W Series” and also motivate and inspire “the next generation of female racing drivers”.
The 2022 season of W Series will prove to be very exciting with Chadwick’s return and the addition of Jenner Racing.
