Williams Racing has today announced that Jamie Chadwick will be competing in the 2023 INDY NXT by Firestone Series with Andretti Autosport. The three-time W Series Champion will take part in the 14-race season in the United States which includes three double-header events. Jamie will become the first female in 13 years to compete full-time in the INDY NXT championship.
The Williams Academy driver recently claimed her third consecutive W Series title in 2022 after a dominant season winning five out of seven races and finishing 50 points ahead of the nearest competitor.
“I’m really happy to be stepping up into INDY NXT next year. It’s a great opportunity for me to be able to get a lot of seat time and continue my development. Racing for a team like Andretti is going to be an amazing experience and I’m really looking forward to racing in the United States. A massive thank you to Williams for the support they’ve given me on my journey since joining the Academy in 2019.”
