MB Partners are delighted to welcome British racing driver, Jake Hughes, to their motorsport stable as the 26-year-old heads into the 2020 FIA Formula Three Championship with HWA RACELAB.
A late entrant into the motorsport ranks, Jake Hughes born in Birmingham, United Kingdom, started karting just before his 16th birthday and in just his first year racing cars, Jake won the inaugural BRDC Formula 4 Championship in 2013.
Two years in Formula Renault yielded race wins and a consistent challenge for championship titles, before Jake made the move to the GP3 Series for 2016. This saw Jake enjoy a thoroughly impressive rookie season, finishing the year 8th in the championship with four podiums and two race wins.
Continuing as a constant front-runner and race winner across GP3, FIA Formula 3 and Asian F3, Jake returns to the F1 support series, FIA Formula 3 Championship, in 2020. Teaming up with HWA RACELAB for his second season with the team from Affalterbach, Germany, Jake is supported by an organisation who has successfully competed in the DTM, in GT racing, in Formula 3 and, most recently, in FIA Formula E.
Jake’s talents have also been called upon by the Mercedes-Benz EQ Formula E Team who placed Jake behind the wheel for the FIA Formula E rookie test in Marrakesh, as well as using him as their simulator driver.
Joining the stable at MB Partners, Jake is now looking to take the next step in his career and break into the professional heights of motorsport.
“I’m thrilled to be joining Mark and all the team at MB Partners. They have a proven track record in helping their clients fulfil their potential and I believe they are the right people to support me on my journey to top-level motorsport. Their knowledge of the motorsport industry and their reputation are second to none so I’m really excited to get our relationship started.”
Mark Blundell, CEO of MB Partners, is delighted to welcome Jake into the ranks at MB Partners.
“Jake is an incredibly talented driver and one that I have been keeping a close eye on for a number of years now. He has the talent, mentality and professionalism to make it very far in the sport and we are all looking forward to working with Jake and supporting him in his career. I know I speak for the whole team in that we are genuinely excited at what lies ahead for Jake.”
Jake’s season gets underway this weekend with the first round of the FIA Formula 3 Championship at the Red Bull Ring, Austria.
