Jack Hawksworth (born 28 February 1991) is a British racing driver from Bradford, West Yorkshire.

Biography[edit]

He started racing karts at 13 years old and was Junior Rotax Euro Max champion and 2nd in the World finals by the time he was 15. After graduating from Juniors, Hawksworth went on to have a career as a professional karter leading to success in KZ1 karting winning the 2009 Trofeo Margutti as well as winning races in the German championship and claiming podiums in the KZ1 and KZ2 European Championships finishing 6th overall in the 2010 KZ1 European Championship for the Maddox Team. In a one off appearance to domestic racing Hawksworth won the 2010 British Kart Masters Grand Prix in Senior Max with Protrain Racing.

Hawksworth graduated to open wheel racing in late 2010 and competed in the 2010 Formula Renault Winter series with Mark Burdett Motorsport. He claimed pole position in 4 out of the 6 races and finished 3rd overall in the championship and top rookie ahead of the Red Bull Juniors of Daniil Kvyat, Carlos Sainz, Jr. and McLaren Autosport Award winner Oliver Rowland. Hawksworth went on to compete in the 2011 Formula Renault UK championship changing teams half way through and finishing 4th overall in the series with a win at Croft.

In 2012 Hawksworth moved to the United States to compete in the 2012 Star Mazda Championship season with Team Pelfrey as part of the Mazda Road to Indy. He broke every record in the series (wins, poles and fastest laps) on his way to claiming the title in his rookie campaign.[1] The driver climbed to the Indy Lights for 2013, by joining Schmidt Peterson Motorsports.[2]

During a practice session for the 2014 Pocono IndyCar 500, Hawksworth suffered a myocardial contusion after a crash, and missed the race.[3]

On November 11 2016, it was announced that 3GT Racing had signed Hawksworth and Robert Alon to race the No. 15 Lexus RC F GT3 in the 2017 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship in the GT Daytona class.
