Former Ginetta Junior driver Jamie Chadwick has been nominated for the 2019 Sportswoman of the Year award.
Chadwick, who competed in the championship between 2013 and 2014, is one of 10 finalists in the Individual Sports category.

The Sportswoman of the Year is an annual competition that aims to “recognise an individual sport athlete and team sport athlete whose performances over a 12-month time span have been exceptional”.
The winner decided by a combination of the public vote and the Awards Committee vote, both of which have equal weighting.
25 sports women have taken the award in the individual category since it was first launched in 1993, but only one motorsport professional – drag racer Melanie Troxel – is a past winner.
Chadwick has been nominated after a dominant performance in the inaugural W Series championship. With just one round remaining, the 21-year-old leads by 18 points.
The Sportswoman of the year website also lists her MRF Challenge Championship victory earlier this year and BRDC British F3 race win among her achievements.
