We are pleased to announce that Jake Hill has been inducted into the British Racing Driver's Club (BRDC) Superstars class for 2020.

On the 11th February 2020, 25 year-old Hill joins the Elite of young drivers hailing from the UK & Commonwealth as he is inducted as one of the select few 'Superstar' drivers as recognised by the BRDC.

Formula One stars including Lando Norris, Alex Albon and George Russell have been part of this programme in recent times, Hill being incredibly honoured to join fellow BTCC driver Ashley Sutton amongst others.

"Some of the drivers that have been part of the programme in the past read as a who's-who of motorsport. To be recognised as one of a handful of drivers that are on the verge of establishing themselves as top-line professionals in our amazing sport is such an honour' said Hill.

"To join Ash (Sutton) and drivers like Bentley GT driver Seb Morris, Ferrari academy driver Callum Illot and the incredible Billy Monger amongst others is a major acheivement. It shows that the hard-work and strong results in BTCC and also Historic Racing, plus the racing I've done before has been noticed and rewarded by legends like Derek Warwick'.

The BRDC programme supports young drivers with PR & Media guidance, dedicated fitness programmes,  wealth of contacts and associations, driver guidance and career path advice.

"I am determined to make the most of this opportunity and will wear the BRDC Superstars emblem with real pride on my helmet and racesuit throughout the season' , added Kent-based Hill.

Andy Meyrick, BRDC Superstars director praised Hill "We have seen just how hard Jake has worked both on and off track to progress his career. It's clear by his results, especially last season, how naturally talented he is, and a great example to other young drivers how persistence can pay off. I am excited to see how Jake develops and looking forward to working with him greatly.

Here at Aston Lark, we are thrilled and  looking forward to supporting Jake during the upcoming British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) season.
