College student celebrating back to back victories

Jamie Chadwick (L6, Ch) co-drove the Beechdean Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage racing car to outright victory in the thrilling Bitcar Dunlop 24 hour race on the famous Silverstone Grand Prix Circuit.

At only 16, Jamie, who can't yet hold a UK driving licence, became both the youngest and also the first ever female winner of the event in an incident-packed race in challenging conditions.

Jamie continues to triumph, winning the ultra-competitive British GT Championships at Rockingham Speedway over the May Bank Holiday weekend. The teenage paring of Jamie and Ross Gun put in a measured and mature drive during Sunday's two-hour encounter to claim a well-deserved GT4 class win.

Following the Rockingham encounter Jamie and Ross, both part of Aston Martin's young driver programme, sit second in the GT4 Silver Cup.

Jamie is next racing in British GT at Silverstone Grand Prix Circuit on 30/31 May.
