The Racing Set

The Racing Set

Earlier this year, racing scholar Jamie Chadwick (L6, Ch) featured in the CBBC programme The Racing Set. The Racing Set is a fast-moving 5 x 15-minute factual series following the fortunes of four teenage racing drivers as they battle on the track in the Ginetta Juniors Championship.

As the only scholar and female, Jamie not only faces the challenges of competing with her often older male revivals, including brother Ollie, but also has the added pressure of bringing the car back safely, avoiding costly repairs after travelling up to 120mph.

The programme concludes with Jamie racing at the world-famous Brands Hatch track, coming off the back of winning top rookie in the previous race. Unfortunately it wasn't to be with Jamie not finishing the race after contact with a fellow competitor, having been running a respectable fourth place.

Jamie is again competing in the Ginetta Junior Championship this year, and with more experience under her belt as a second year driver, she is making regular appearances on the podium and hopes to be pushing for wins going into the second half of the season.
