Jamie Chadwick will continue with Andretti in Indy Nxt for a second season in 2024.
The three-time W Series champion, who remains a member of the Williams Formula 1 team’s academy, moved her career to the United States at the start of this year.
Her adaptation to Indy Nxt proved difficult at first but results did improve as the season went on, peaking with a sixth-place finish at the penultimate round at Portland as she ended up 12th in the final standings.
“I’m really looking forward to being back with Andretti to compete in my second Indy Nxt season,” Chadwick said.
“My first year with the team taught me so much and we were able to make a lot of progress with every race. I know that taking this experience and confidence into 2024 is going to be massively valuable for us, and I truly feel like part of the family here. I can’t wait to hit the ground running this winter and see what we can do for next season.”
Team owner Michael Andretti believes Chadwick showed ‘strong progress’ during 2023.
“It’s a pleasure to have Jamie return to our Indy Nxt team for 2024,” he said. “Developing talent has always been a priority for Andretti, and Jamie’s motorsports journey is a perfect example of what we hope to achieve with our development drivers.
“Jamie represents what it means to break down barriers and continues to impress everyone in our organization. The growth that we saw in Jamie’s rookie season was strong and we’re confident that coming back to Indy Nxt is the right choice as she continues to advance her open-wheel career.”
Of the four drivers to have so far been announced by Andretti for Indy Nxt in 2024, Chadwick is the third that will be staying with the team for a second year, joining Louis Foster and James Roe Jr.
