Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

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.”
