ABB FIA Formula E Championship team NIO is delighted to today confirm exciting British talent Jamie Chadwick will again test with the squad following round two of Season 5 in Morocco.

Having thoroughly enjoyed her maiden outing in NIO’s Gen-2 car the day after the recent SAUDIA Ad Diriyah e-Prix, where the 20-year-old made a strong impression on the NIO team personnel, Chadwick will also now head to the streets of Marrakesh next week.

Race two of the 2018/2019 season will take place on Saturday, 12th January, around the 12-turn Circuit International Automobile Moulay El Hassan before the officially timed post-event test on Sunday, 13th January.

As in Saudi Arabia, the Tetbury-based driver – the only female in history to win a race in the British Formula 3 Championship – will again join the team as they continue to focus on set-up work and an ongoing testing development programme.


Jamie Chadwick, Test Driver, NIO Formula E Team:

“I’m thrilled to be jumping back into the NIO Season 5 Formula E car at the official rookie test event in Marrakesh. I loved every minute of the first test in Riyadh and now I am acclimatised to the car, I am confident we can have a successful test. Once again, a huge thank you to Gérry (Hughes) and the team for giving me the opportunity. I cannot wait.”

Gérry Hughes, Team Principal, NIO Formula E Team:

“After a somewhat reduced test event programme in Saudi Arabia due to a technical issue beyond our control, I am obviously very pleased to extend the opportunity for Jamie to test with us once again. This is obviously a case of ‘same car, different testing environment’ but one that I know that she will relish and it will be very interesting to witness her progress during the day.”
