Jack Butel began his career by winning back-to-back Jersey karting titles in 2011 and 2012. Since then, he rose swiftly through the ranks racing in LMP and GT series since 2017.
2019 saw Jack racing as an Aston Martin Academy driver in British GT4, as well as participating in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe Series, a campaign which saw him claim a podium finish in Jerez.
Having previously raced under the Ciceley Motorsport banner at the 2020 24hr of Dubai, the team seemed the perfect fit for a maiden BTCC season as the Jersey racer piloted the Carlube TripleR Racing with Mac Tools Mercedes-Benz A-Class to his first points-finish during the second race weekend, at Brands Hatch.
After moving to the EXCELR8-backed squad ahead of the 2021 season, Butel continued with the team in 2022. Here, he secured a handful of top 20 finishes across the campaign and finished in the points during Thruxton’s second event. He also claimed his second Jack Sears Trophy honour at Thruxton, after a masterclass drive saw him move six places up the grid into the points, even with earlier damage to his car.
For the 2023 season, Butel moves to Team HARD. Racing fielding a CUPRA Leon as he aims for further Jack Sears Trophy successes.
