Now it is the turn of the English Jamie Chadwick, who will be the female representative of the Veloce Racing property of Adrian Newey y Jean-Eric Vergne.
Chadwick achieved worldwide recognition as the first champion of the W Series, a category of monoposts exclusively for women. That title allowed her to be hired by the team Williams de F1 to be a development pilot.
“I am proud to drive for Veloce Racing in a championship as revolutionary as Extreme E! I have been involved with Veloce for a long time and they are like family to me, so I am incredibly honored to be their female driver in what is such an exciting and important racing series. "Jamie explained.
“Climate change is something that affects us all, so I really want to start doing my part to combat it. I can safely say that testing the car was one of the best and most fun experiences I have had in my career so far. ", Agregó.
The Spanish Alexander Agag, responsible for Extreme E, welcomed the 22-year-old. "She is an incredibly successful young woman and I am sure she will adapt quickly to off-road racing." he claimed.
The pioneering series of E-SUVs will mark an entirely new challenge for Chadwick, as it will represent his competitive off-road debut. In preparation, he spent last week driving the ODYSSEY 21 in Fontjoncouse, in the south of France. In addition, next month he will also accumulate kilometers during a group test at the MotorLand in Aragón, Spain.
