Chadwick joins PREMA Powerteam for Formula Regional European Championship

Reigning W Series champion Jamie Chadwick has taken the next step in her impressive career to date, joining PREMA Powerteam, partnered by Acronis, for the forthcoming Formula Regional European Championship.

Chadwick is arguably the most high-profile female racing driver in the world at the moment, boasting not only the W Series crown but the British GT Championship in the GT4 class in 2015. She also romped to the MRF Challenge Formula 2000 title during a busy 2019, at the same time taking on the role of development driver for the Williams Formula One team and testing for the NIO 333 Formula E Team, both also partnered by Acronis.

“I am absolutely elated to be teaming up with Prema Powerteam for the Formula Regional European Championship this year,” Chadwick is quoted on Prema’s press release. “With such an amazing calendar, what looks to be a very competitive grid, and of course the support of the Prema team, I really cannot wait to get back racing in August.

“I am incredibly grateful to Rodin Cars and David Dicker for this life changing opportunity, and their support in the next chapter of my racing career. I’m so excited to start this journey with them and I hope we can enjoy mutual success together.”

The Prema Powerteam is widely recognised as one of the most successful teams in junior formulae, dominating the FIA European Formula 3 Championship for the past six seasons and providing the perfect platform for drivers with ambition to compete at the very highest level of motorsport.

“We are delighted to welcome Jamie to our Formula Regional European team for the upcoming season. She achieved brilliant results in her career so far, and we are looking forward to seeing her step up to this challenging international championship,” added Angelo Rosin, Team Principal.

“Coming from the W Series, she knows the machinery quite well and her experience will definitely be a valuable asset. We are absolutely committed and will give our 100 per cent to help her succeed.”
