JACK MITCHELL

"I love chips and gravy..."

Jack began his racing career at the age of eight, in Honda cadets, becoming South East Champion and winning both Summer and Winter titles at Bayford Meadows and Buckmore Park the following season, a feat he repeated upon graduating to Mini Max in 2009.

Moving up the ladder, Jack was crowned Champion in The London Cup and The Brazilian Cup, ending the 2011 season as vice-Champion in both the British Super One and Kartstars Championships.

Jack graduated to cars in 2012, finishing his debut season as vice-Champion in the Motoring News Ford Fiesta Junior Championship.

A move to the Ginetta Juniors series yielded more silverware, taking 3rd spot in the 2013 Winter Championship, followed by his first car-racing title, the 2014 Ginetta Juniors Championship.

In 2015, Jack combined a season in Renault Clios with appearances in the MINI Challenge, before turning his sights to the British GT Championship, signing with Macmillan Racing for his debut season.
