Ginetta Juniors 2010: Where Are They Now?

7 Mins read

Jake Hill

Ingram’s main challenge in 2010 came from Jake Hill and Louise Richardson – with Hill particularly unlucky not to walk away with the championship himself.

Hill picked up a stunning ten wins over the course of the season – double the amount of champion Ingram – however a pair of retirements and a disqualification ultimately cost him the title.

Graduating into the G50’s in 2011, Hill was an outside challenger for the title, with four class wins taking him to fourth in the final standings. After missing the start of 2012 due to budget problems, Hill eventually stepped up into the G55 category in the middle of the season, carding six podium finishes including a maiden win.

While the returning budget problems mean Hill didn’t make many racing appearances this season – those he did make were impressive first outings in the BTCC.

After a class-winning turn in a Motorbase S2000 Ford Focus at Croft, the 19 year old showed strong pace in a NGTC Audi A4 at the Brands Hatch season finale – hinting that a successful career in the BTCC could beckon if budget allows.
