Hill joins Team Hard for full BTCC campaign
Jake Hill has joined Team Hard in a Toyota Avensis in his first full campaign in the British Touring Car Championship.
Hill has had sporadic outings in the BTCC. He drove for the Motorbase team in a Ford Focus at Croft in 2013, and joined Rob Austin Racing in an Audi for the final two rounds at Brands Hatch that same season. Last year, he competed in the finale at Brands Hatch at the wheel of an AMD Tuning.com Audi S3.
The 22-year-old will join Chris Smiley on Team Hard’s driving roster. Hill explained: “Now I hope I can show what I can do with a full programme – my first in any series since 2011 .”
Team principal Tony Gilham said he has been watching Hill’s progress: “With Jake joining Chris [Smiley], we have one of the most exciting pairings of young talent in the series.”
