Laser Tools Racing with MB Motorsport reunite with Jake Hill for 2024 BTCC title charge
Laser Tools Racing with MB Motorsport are delighted to announce that BTCC frontrunner and fan favourite, Jake Hill, will once again lead the team’s assault on the 2024 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship. A winning combination, Jake will take the wheel of the WSR-run #24 BMW 330e M Sport as the team looks to fight for overall honours in the new season.
Flying the flag for Laser Tools Racing for the first time in 2023, Jake Hill and MB Motorsport enjoyed their best-ever season notching six victories and 12 podiums on their way to a P3 finish in the Drivers’ Championship. Now the team’s eyes are set on continuing their upward trajectory in 2024, backed by the operational excellence of WSR.
2024 marks a landmark campaign for Laser Tools Racing in particular as they celebrate their tenth year on the grid of the UK’s premier motorsport championship. Plans are already well underway for the ‘Laser Beemer’ in its 2024 and anniversary iteration.
Thrilled to have his plans confirmed in good time, Jake cannot wait to get back out on track next year.
“It is amazing to have everything lined up for 2024 already, this is the earliest I have ever managed to pull everything together and my thanks go out to everyone at Laser Tools Racing with MB Motorsport for making another year together possible. The combination of Laser Tools Racing with MB Motorsport, WSR and the BMW 330e M Sport proved to be a winning one last time out and I am encouraged with all the work going on behind the scenes that we can go even better in 2024.
“It’s a big year for everyone at Laser Tools Racing as they celebrate ten years in the BTCC so it’s a privilege to be the one chosen to represent them in 2024. Rest assured me and the whole team will be giving it our all to make it a year to remember for everyone.”
Sporting Director of Laser Tools Racing with MB Motorsport, Mark Blundell, is equally delighted to get the key pillars of the team’s programme aligned so early into the close season.
“I think anyone who knows the BTCC knows just how important continuity and stability are to delivering a winning operation on and off the track. It’s fantastic to bring everything together so that everyone can focus on the task at hand and raise our standards into 2024. My sincere thanks go out to everyone at Laser Tools and Tool Connection for trusting in MB Motorsport to be their partner of choice on the BTCC grid.
“Jake had a great season in 2023 – his pace is clear for all to see and we know we have learnt some lessons which we can put to good effect next season to make us even stronger. We are also delighted to be continuing to work with Dick Bennetts’ WSR and BMW. We have enjoyed two years of success together so far and I know how motivated everyone is to go even better in 2024.”
Keith Anderson, Laser Tools Racing’s Sponsorship Coordinator, commented: “We are delighted to be continuing the challenge for the BTCC crown for 2024 with Jake Hill and MB Motorsport. Jake’s stellar performance in 2023 sets the stage for an even more remarkable year ahead. With Laser Tools Racing’s decade of success in the BTCC, it’s only fitting that we stride into 2024 with a formidable contender, ready to write another chapter in our racing legacy.”
Dick Bennetts, WSR Team Principal, said: “We’re very pleased to extend our partnership with Laser Tools Racing with MB Motorsport for another year and to have Jake Hill once again behind the wheel of one of our BMW 330e M Sports. Over the past two seasons, he has proven himself to be one of the most skilled and committed drivers in the field and been a regular race winner and podium finisher, while our relationship with Mark Blundell and MB Motorsport has gone from strength to strength. We have very high hopes for what can be achieved together in 2024.”
