The team’s impressive performance notched their third consecutive second-row start, demonstrating prowess on the track, with Jake Hill securing P4 among the fierce competition on the sun-soaked Snetterton Circuit.
Jake lined the grid for race one on Sunday, race day at Snetterton Circuit, after a successful qualifying day on Saturday.
Using all three tyre compounds (soft, medium and hard) across three races, Jake started the opening race from the second row on the soft compound tyres. Jake got a fantastic launch in race one, using the soft compound tyres to his advantage.
Starting race two from the front row in second place, Jake challenged Sutton for the race lead through the opening corners but remained in second place after the opening lap.
Jake executed a clean and measured race taking the chequered flag from second place again to record back-to-back podium finishes and a strong haul of points.
Having used the medium compound tyres in race two, Jake used the hardest compound in race three with a 5th-place starting position in the reverse grid draw.
In a battling race where several other drivers had opted to use the ultra-fast soft compound, Jake finished amongst his BMW teammates with a hard-earned 10th place, his 40 points earned being his best weekend scored so far in 2023.
Jake now sits tied for 4th in the Drivers’ Championship, with 98 points as the series heads to Thruxton Circuit for round four of the season (3–4 June).
