Following a short karting career, Jake Hill graduated to car racing in 2008. Tackling the Ginetta Junior Winter Series, he wound up as top rookie and fourth overall. Progressing to the main championship a year later, Hill took three wins in a part-campaign before a season-long battle with future BTCC rival Tom Ingram in 2010 yielded the runner-up spoils.
After gaining further experience in the Ginetta GT Supercup in 2011 and 2012, Hill made his BTCC debut in 2013 in a Motorbase Performance-run Ford Focus. Deputising for Liam Griffin, he won the Jack Sears class at Croft. At the end of the season, Hill returned to the grid with Exocet Racing and claimed his first BTCC points.
In 2016, Hill got his first full-time BTCC opportunity with RCIB Insurance Racing in a Toyota Avensis, and bested his team-mates on the way to a respectable 17th. He returned in 2017 with Team HARD-run TAG Racing, at the wheel of a Volkswagen CC and was again a regular visitor to the points-paying positions. He was part of a four-car effort from Team HARD in 2018 in a facelifted VW CC, but completed just half of the season – albeit including a maiden podium on home soil in the Brands Hatch curtain-raiser.
He joined TradePriceCars.com for 2019 and drove the Audi S3 Saloon to a maiden BTCC victory.
In 2020, Hill raced a Honda Civic Type R for the first time, with the Blundell-backed MB Motorsport accelerated by Blue Square team and sticks with the squad for 2021, as he tackles new challenges in the Ford Focus ST.
