Hill hoping for more success
Hill hoping for more success

Jake Hill is looking to continue his recent success in the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship once the 2020 season gets underway.

Having achieved his first race win in the Trade Price Cars Racing Audi in 2019, he is aiming to continue that success with more race wins in 2020, with his new team.

Speaking to Kent Sports News about the 2020 season, he said: “I am more confident than I have ever been, 2020 is definitely a year that I am more excited about than any other, right car, right team, right people around me.”

Hill will be racing as part of the newly named MB Motorsport for 2020, working with two familiar names Shaun Hollamby and Mark Blundell.

Giving his thoughts about being part of what looks like a strong team and partnership, he added: “For sure, it’s a massive pleasure to be a part of MB Motorsport and their ever growing presence can only be a good thing for me & BTCC.”

Hill has set himself an ambition target for the 2020 season when it gets underway hopefully at the end of June or the beginning of July.

He said: “Of course, my main aim is to win the Independents championship and have massive fun along the way. Win a few races and try and finish in the top five overall. The Honda FK2 Type R is a real pleasure to drive and easy to see why it has been so successful in previous years, it is a little rocket ship!”

During testing Hill has been getting to know his new Honda Civic, although he doesn’t need to do too much development.

“Yes and No, there isn’t anything to really improve on with the Honda as it’s such a massively developed car, but just getting settled in and tuning it to me is always nice and I’m very confident once we get going.”

With the announcement that there will be no racing until the end of June, Hill was pleased that there was still racing that will take place.

He said: “It is a horrid time for everyone no matter what you do, but it’s nice to know that when this does clear up we will have a decent amount of races in place to make a championship.”
