Williams Formula 1 development driver and W Series champion Jamie Chadwick will take part in next month's Formula E rookie test for Jaguar in Marrakesh.

 It will be Chadwick's third outing at the wheel of FE machinery following previous runs for NIO in Riyadh in 2018 and in Marrakesh last year.

"I'm thrilled to be joining the Panasonic Jaguar Racing team for the official rookie test event in Marrakesh," said Chadwick.

"I'm a huge fan of Formula E and everything that it stands for so to be teaming up with this race-winning outfit is an incredible opportunity. "I can't wait to get in the car and work closely with the team to have a successful test."

Chadwick is the second W Series regular to have been confirmed for the Marrakech test, following the announcement that Alice Powell will drive for Envision Virgin Racing.

Jaguar team director James Barclay added: "It is great to welcome Jamie on board as one of our rookie test drivers. "After proving her ability on track during the W Series, we're excited to see her step up and see what she can do in the Jaguar I-TYPE 4.

"She will bring us some critical insights for the development of the racecar and I'm looking forward to working with Jamie in Marrakech."
