Coulthard and Chadwick team up for Race of Champions

Reigning two-time W Series champion Jamie Chadwick will partner former McLaren driver David Coulthard at the 2022 Race of Champions 'Snow and Ice' event in Sweden.

Chadwick will become just the second female driver to take part in the main Race of Champions event when she takes to the specially created ice track in February.

"I’m super excited to make my Race Of Champions debut in Sweden," said Chadwick.

"It’s an event I’ve always loved watching so I can’t wait to experience it for the first time.

"It’s going to be an honour to represent Great Britain with an icon like David Coulthard."

F1 driver turned pundit Coulthard was crowned the 'Champion of Champions' in both 2014 and 2018 and is a regular competitor at the event.

Coulthard will this year compete against Sebastian Vettel, Mick Schumacher, Valtteri Bottas and his former McLaren team-mate Mika Hakkinen. "[The] Race Of Champions is an event I always enjoy competing in, but racing on snow and ice this year will be a very different experience to the stadium tracks," explained Coulthard.

"I have done some ice driving with AMG Mercedes in Sweden in the past, but it will be a challenge to beat the Nordic drivers in their element."

Race of Champions president Fredrik Johnsson added: "Over 30 years only one other female racer has competed in the main ROC events.

"That was Susie Wolff in 2014. Susie teamed up with DC at that event to finish in second place in the ROC Nations Cup.

"ROC is designed to be a 'level playing field'. I co-founded Race Of Champions with the world’s most successful female driver, Michele Mouton, who proved that women can win against men at the highest level.

"We look forward to seeing more women competing at the top-level of motorsports, as racing becomes more accessible."
