Jamie Chadwick is still pursuing further racing programmes to add to her schedule for the 2020 season alongside defending the W Series title.

Chadwick won the inaugural W Series crown in 2019, balancing her commitments in the all-female series with a development role with Williams in Formula 1 that she will continue to fulfil through 2020.

Chadwick also made appearances in Asian Formula 3 and at the Nurburgring 24 sports car race, winning her class in the latter.

The 21-year-old confirmed in October that she would be returning to W Series in 2020 to defend her title, but she is now looking to add more events to her schedule, with a drive in Japanese F3 being a possibility.

“At the moment, 2020, we’ve confirmed to do the W Series again, and at the moment we’re in the middle of the Asian F3 championship, so those are the first commitments that we’ve announced,” Chadwick said.

“But the plan is to continue doing more stuff. I’m pushing to do some racing alongside W Series potentially out in Japan, so busy year again, but hopefully that’s a good thing.”

Chadwick is preparing for her 2020 schedule by racing in Asian F3 over the winter, recording a best finish of seventh at the opening round in Malaysia last month. She hopes the five-round series will help her preparations for the new W Series season, which begins on May 30.

“I think Asian F3 is going to be really important for preparing me for W Series,” Chadwick said.

“Championships are won and lost in the off-season, so I think the hard work that goes into the off-season is what makes the real season successful or not.

“To be able to be out racing as much as I am out in Asia I think is going to be really important.”
