Stuart Hall (born 18 October 1984 in Chelmsford) is a British racing driver. He has competed at the 24 Hours of Le Mans for teams including Aston Martin Racing.

Career[edit]

Single-seaters[edit]

After winning the T Cars championship in 2000, Hall moved into single-seaters. In 2002 he finished ninth in the British Formula Ford Championship, before coming fourth in that year's Winter Series, where he won two of the four races.[1] The following year he only started 12 of the 20 races in the series, concentrating instead on his A level studies.[2] After debuting in Formula Renault in the 2003 UK Winter Series, he raced full-time in Formula Renault UK in 2004. Driving for Fortec Motorsport, he finished seventh overall with three podium finishes. He then won the Winter Series, winning one of the four races. He remained in Formula Renault UK in 2005, but slipped to eighth overall although he had increased his podium tally to five.

2006 saw Hall move up to British Formula Three. He raced the first five race weekends with Fortec, before missing the sixth round at Spa-Francorchamps and returning with T-Sport. He finished the year 13th in the standings.

Sportscars[edit]

Hall switched to sportscars in 2007, contesting the Le Mans Series in Rollcentre Racing's Pescarolo-Judd LMP1, though he raced the season finale in Brazil with the Creation Autosportif team. He finished fifth in the drivers' standings, and also finished fourth at the 24 Hours of Le Mans with Rollcentre. He drove for Creation in 2008, finishing seventh in the Le Mans Series and 11th at Le Mans. He joined Aston Martin Racing in 2009, contesting the 24 Hours, from which his car retired, and the final two rounds of the Le Mans Series.

Hall made just a few British GT appearances in 2010–11, before signing to race the new Pescarolo 03 at the 2012 24 Hours of Le Mans.[3] In 2013, Hall drove a Vantage V8 GTE for Aston Martin Racing in the LMGTE Am class of the FIA World Endurance Championship. He won it together with Jamie Campbell-Walter.
