In January the Extreme E Championship will start in which several electric cars compete against each other in nature. After Rosberg and Hamilton already announced to sign up their own team for this environmentally conscious race, Veloce Racing now opts for a unique one, with a woman behind the wheel.
Chadwick goes into battle
''I am proud to be driving for Veloce Racing in such a revolutionary championship as Extreme E! I have been involved with Veloce for a very long time and they are like a family to me, so I am incredibly honoured to be their female driver for what is such an exciting and important race series," said Chadwick in the press release. Chadwick is no stranger to the paddock as a test driver for Williams and W Series champion.
''Climate change is something that affects us all, so I’m really keen to start doing my part to fight it. I can safely say that testing the car was one of the best and most fun experiences I have had in my career so far. I can’t wait to get out to the amazing venues where we’ll be racing next year; these are some of the most beautiful and endangered locations on our planet. Both on and off-track, it promises to be an incredibly rewarding journey'', concludes the British.
