Stephen Jelley


Stephen Jelley’s career began in single-seaters, firstly in Formula Ford and subsequently British Formula 3, finishing third overall in the latter in 2007 courtesy of two race wins.

He contested the 2008 GP2 Asia Series before switching to the BTCC with Team RAC the same year, scoring seven points finishes. Despite dislocating his shoulder in an accident at Silverstone, he continued to compete and took the chequered flag inside the top ten in the very next race. He took pole position in the season finale, though a broken gearbox scuppered his chances come race day.

The Midlander continued with Team RAC in 2009, winning twice at Rockingham and tallying three further podium finishes en route to sixth spot in the final Drivers’ table.

After stints in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB, British GT and the Blancpain Endurance Series, Jelley returned to the BTCC in 2017, piloting a Ford Focus fielded by Team Parker Racing with Maximum Motorsport.

He stayed put in 2018, making the switch to a BMW 125i M Sport. Jelley continued into 2019 for a third consecutive campaign with the outfit in Britain’s top flight, yielding a rostrum finish at Brands Hatch and a win at Oulton Park – his first in ten years. He remains with the team for 2020.
