Reserve Driver: Jake Hughes

#

Born in Birmingham, United Kingdom, on May 30, 1994, Jake Hughes was a late arrival on the motor racing scene, but despite only commencing his career at the age of 15, the Briton quickly showcased his potential and natural ability behind the wheel.

After one year of karting, Jake graduated to single-seaters in 2012 and made his first full-time professional outing in the 2013 BRDC British Formula 4 Championship – a series he won with four victories and six further podiums.

 

This early success allowed the Briton to graduate to the ever-competitive environment of Formula Renault, and in 2015, he finished as the vice-champion of the 2.0 Alps Series, five points shy of title winner Jack Aitken.

 

Jake made the move to Formula 3-level competition in 2016, contesting the GP3 Series, European Formula 3 and FIA Formula 3 championships until 2020, taking seven wins and 23 podiums across all three categories.

 

After previously representing NIO 333 and Mercedes-EQ in Formula E’s annual rookie test, Jake joined ROKiT Venturi Racing as the team’s Reserve Driver on February 25, 2021, in preparation for the category’s seventh season.
