Reigning British GT Championship GT4 champion Jamie Chadwick has announced a two round deal with Generation AMR SuperRacing in British GT.
Chadwick, who will already be competing in the last three rounds of the season alongside Paul Hollywood in a Beechdean AMR Aston Martin Vantage GT4, has announced she will drive alongside Matthew George in a similar Vantage GT4 at Brands Hatch next weekend as well as Rockingham at the end of the month.
The deal comes as regular driver James Holder has business commitments keeping him out of the seat for the first two outings of the year.
Chadwick said: “It’s certainly turning into a busier year than I expected. 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.”
For Team Principal James Appleby, the chance to sign the reigning GT4 champion is a sign his team can be series contenders, he 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 first round of the British GT Championship season takes place next weekend, April 16/17, at Brands Hatch with The Checkered Flag providing full coverage of the two-hour race.
