Following a short karting career, Hill graduated to car racing in 2008. Tackling the Ginetta Junior Winter Series, he wound up as top rookie and fourth overall. Progressing to the main championship a year later, Hill took three wins in a part-campaign before a season-long battle with Tom Ingram in 2010 yielded the runner-up spoils.
After gaining further experience in the Ginetta GT Supercup in 2011-12, Hill made his BTCC debut in 2013 in a Motorbase Performance-run Ford Focus. Deputising for Liam Griffin, Jake won the Jack Sears class at Croft. At the end of the season, Hill returned to the grid with Exocet Racing and claimed his first BTCC points, just missing out on a top ten finish. His most recent outing came in the 2015 Brands Hatch finale driving for AmD Tuning.
In 2016, Hill got his first full-time BTCC opportunity with RCIB Insurance Racing in a Toyota Avensis, and bested his team-mates on the way to a respectable 17th in the standings after multiple strong points finishes. He raced for Team HARD in 2017 and is continuing the partnership in 2018.
