Jake Hill is "one of UK motorsport's brightest young prospects" according to Motorsport News.
2010, his first full season of racing, was a record-breaker: Most wins, poles & fastest laps in the fiercely competitive Ginetta Junior series, as a result of which he was made a BRDC Rising Star.
In 2011 Jake’s success continued with 17 podium finishes, 4 wins & 4 fastest laps in the Ginetta G50GT series. Jake has now moved into the G55 class of the Michelin GT Supercup, winning at Snetterton & taking 5 more podiums, but has to work hard to raise the funds to continue racing.
Jake's determined to become a professional racing driver, and compete at the Le Mans 24 Hours. To find out how you could help him, please e-mail email@example.com
19 year-old BRDC 'Rising Star' Jake Hill has said he is 'Concentrating on the next step' of his career after the frustration of being offered a deal to race as part of the KX Akademy, only to be let down by a sponsor who had signed a contract to support him for 2013, but failed to honour their commitment, resulting in him losing the KX drive.
In a surpise but very welcome move, 19 year-old BRDC Rising Star Jake Hill has been selected as one of Double BTCC Champion Jason Plato's KX Akademy drivers for 2013.
Hill was originally on the short-list of 12 drivers chosen last Autumn, and race winning team Scuderia Vittoria had Stefan Hodgetts, Ant Whorton-Eales and Luke Herbert lined up to race in the Renault Clio Cup with KX support.
However when Luke Herbert was unable to take his position in the team, Jake was called by Jason Plato and offered a place, subject to raising a percentage of the total budget required.
As he today celebrates his 19th Birthday, Goudhurst racing driver Jake is fully focussed on his 2013 campaign which is due to be announced officially any day now.
Having worked hard during the off season on getting funding in place, the British Racing Driver's Club 'Rising Star' is confident that things are almost there.
