CONTENDER CATCH-UP: JAKE HILL
With just days remaining before the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship finale is upon us, the Official BTCC Website has caught up with the five drivers in contention for the title in an exclusive interview series.
Brands Hatch’s Grand Prix circuit sets the scene for the final three races of the 2021 campaign this weekend (23/24 October) and the battle for the most coveted prize in British motorsport has fans, teams and drivers alike on the edge of their seats, desperate to find out who will come out on top.
Holding fourth place in the standings heading into the final event – and the contender we’ll hear from today – is MB Motorsport accelerated by Blue Square’s Jake Hill.
Hill enjoyed a strong start to the year, with a hat-trick of podium finishes during Thruxton’s opener initially placing him at the summit of the battle for the crown. Consistently scoring points throughout the campaign, Hill’s title charge came alive once again at Knockhill, where the 27-year-old kicked off a run of rostrum finishes, before claiming victories at Croft and Silverstone.
With more visits to the podium in 2021 than any of his rivals, Hill sits 45 points in arrears of the current standings leader with it all to play for at his home circuit of Brands Hatch.
