GT4 cham­pion Chad­wick se­cures deal to con­test sea­son opener

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Reign­ing British GT4 cham­pion Jamie Chad­wick has se­cured a late deal to con­test the first rounds of the se­ries this year with the new Su­per­rac­ing team.

Chad­wick will race at both this week­end’s sea­son-opener at Brands Hatch and the fol­low­ing event at Rock­ing­ham in place of Su­perdry founder James Holder, who has busi­ness com­mit­ments.

Chad­wick will share the team’s As­ton Martin Van­tage GT4 with se­ries new­comer Matt Ge­orge. Chad­wick was only due to con­test the fi­nal three British GT rounds, shar­ing a Beechdean Van­tage GT4 with Paul Hol­ly­wood.

Chad­wick said: “This year has got very busy all of a sud­den. I was sur­prised but very flat­tered to get the of­fer to join Su­per­rac­ing. It will be in­ter­est­ing to work with a new team and I know Matt has a lot of ex­pe­ri­ence from coach­ing driv­ers on sim­u­la­tors [at Base Per­for­mance], but he hasn’t got much GT rac­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

“It’s my A-level ex­ams, so rac­ing has to be bal­anced. I don’t think a ti­tle de­fence is on as I’m miss­ing Oul­ton Park and Sil­ver­stone, and Sil­ver­stone is worth the most points all year as it’s three hours. It will be a fun year any­way.” ● Chad­wick also took part in a BRDC British F3 test at Snet­ter­ton last week with Hill­speed to gain ex­tra aero ex­pe­ri­ence.
