Jake Hill aims to ‘reignite title bid’ after dominant display

Jake Hill will hope to fight for a win that will ‘reignite his title bid’ after dominating qualifying for the latest rounds of the BTCC season at Knockhill.

At the scene of his maiden victory in the series during his time in the Trade Price Cars Racing Audi, Hill was in dominant form during the session as the BMW 330e M Sport proved to be the class of the field.

Hill would set no fewer than three laps quick enough for pole during the session as he beat Ash Sutton to top spot, and will now hope to convert it into victory on race day to make up ground in the points.

“I’m delighted with how today’s gone,” he said. “It’s always a thrill to drive at Knockhill, but to have a car as well-balanced as the BMW 330e M Sport was today, it just goes to another level.

“ROKiT MB Motorsport and WSR have done a phenomenal job on the car and I had plenty of confidence to keep pushing more and more.

“To do three laps good enough for pole shows where we are and I’m confident that if it stays dry, the BMW’s race pace – which is normally very strong – should allow me to fight for at least one win and re-ignite the title fight.”
