Andretti Global INDY NXT driver Jamie Chadwick is in Portland this weekend for the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship and ahead of Sunday’s second race at Portland International Raceway, the British driver who recently won a INDY NXT race tested the Gen3 ABB FIA Formula E car before taking her boss, Michael Andretti for some demonstration laps.

Jamie Chadwick, said:

“To be given the opportunity to drive the GEN3 car was really special. Getting to experience what the battery power can do and how that feels under your feet was really cool. It’s great to see how far the series has come as a whole and everything Formula E are doing to champion change.”

“The Hot Lap was also really fun. Michael knows this track better than anyone, so it was great to get the chance to ride with him.”

Michael Andretti, CEO, Andretti Global said:

“Riding with Jamie was great fun. Her talent and precision on the track are evident. From her days dominating W Series to her milestone victory in INDY NXT, I’m proud to have her as part of the Andretti Global family and look forward to her continued success.”

Beth Paretta, VP of Sporting, Formula E said:

“It was great to have Jamie join us here in Portland for a Formula E race weekend. We’re thrilled to see drivers like Jamie leading the charge, setting new standards, and inspiring the next generation of racers.”

“As a series that strives to be at the forefront of innovation and inclusivity, we hope to be able to offer more opportunities for female talent to get behind the wheel of Formula E machinery and race in the world’s fastest-growing electric motorsport championship in the future.”
