F3 star Jamie Chadwick joins Dare To Be Different's ambassador line-up

Jamie Chadwick (Photo by Marc Waller)Dare To Be Different is delighted and proud to announce that celebrated female racing driver, Jamie Chadwick, has joined as an ambassador to the initiative.

Fresh from the British F3 season finale at Silverstone last weekend (13/14 October), where she finished 8th overall, Jamie has already achieved record-breaking status in her career so far. At still only 20-years-old, she has made history twice - once as the first female ever to win a Formula Three race and secondly as the youngest and only female to win a British GT Championship.

Jamie brings a wealth of experience to Dare To Be Different. Beginning her racing career in karts at the age of 11, she then quickly progressed to cars after winning the Ginetta Junior Scholarship. In 2016 she moved up to the British GT Championship and at only 16-years-of-age, went on to win it overall. Next came British Formula Three where she achieved a podium in only her second race - and in season two this year, she stormed to victory at Brands Hatch becoming the first female to ever win an F3 race.

On joining D2BD as an ambassador, Jamie said, "It's fantastic to join the Dare To Be Different family, I've followed its work closely for a while now, and encouraging girls into all aspects of our sport is something very close to my heart. I'm really excited to get stuck in at the events and join the ever growing D2BD community."

Dare To Be Different's founder Susie Wolff says: “I am very proud and delighted to have Jamie as an ambassador to Dare To Be Different. At only 20, she has already achieved what many could only dream of in an entire lifetime - Jamie's a huge inspiration to girls who want to forge a career in the racing side of our sport."
