Former British Karting Champion Jessica Hawkins comes to Excelr8 Motorsport as a debutante in the Mini Challenge for what will be her first full season in car racing. Jessica views this as an exciting opportunity to develop her race craft and establish herself as a serious Championship contender, giving her an ideal platform to showcase her talent and true potential.
Since her car racing debut in Clio’s in 2013 achieving a P2 and fastest lap, she has gained experience in several categories including F4, MRF2000 and the VW Racing cup, but mainly as a guest driver and has not yet contested a full season. Having competed in several high profile events belies the lack of seat time Jessica has actually banked, just the equivalent of 1 season spanning the last 4 years, so she is relishing the prospect of mounting a full title challenge.
Drawing on all the skills she has leant from these appearances and her highly successful karting career, Jessica is determined to forge a long term career in motorsport. ‘It’s the combination of teamwork, car, driver and consistency that wins championships, and this is exactly where I need to be right now to work towards that goal’
Jessica will be racing in the Cooper Pro class with Excelr8 in the Bizkart liveried car and whilst this may be her maiden season, she is aiming to be a regular visitor to the podium!
