Jake Hill (born 22 February 1994 in Tunbridge Wells) is an British race driver who competed in the British Touring Car Championship for Addison Lee Motorbase.

Racing career[edit]

Ginetta Junior Championship[edit]

After a short but successful karting career, Hill began car racing in 2008, having signed with Tollbar Racing to tackle the Ginetta Junior Championship Winter Series. Hill finished the series as the top rookie and fourth overall.[1] This led to Hill joining the main championship in 2009. Despite not racing the full season, Hill took three wins and finished the championship in 11th overall.

The following season saw the début of the Ginetta G40 in the championship, replacing the previous Ginetta G20. 2010 was just as successful for Hill, which saw him take a further 10 wins on his way to finishing second in the championship to Tom Ingram.

Ginetta GT Supercup[edit]

In 2011, Hill made the step up into a Ginetta G50, racing in the Michelin Ginetta GT Supercup. Hill secured four class wins during this season.

Hill only had a partial campaign in 2012, but still took a single overall win in the championship.

British Touring Car Championship[edit]

2013 saw Hill make his début in the BTCC whilst substituting for absent Addison Lee Motorbase driver Liam Griffin at the Croft round of the championship. Hill took a Jack Sears Trophy class win in the first round of the meeting.

Hill joined Rob Austin Racing prior to the final round of the 2013 season at Brands Hatch, replacing Will Bratt.[2]
