Biography

Despite being deemed ‘too small’ Jessica Hawkins got her first glimpse of a kart aged eight and immediately ‘fell in love with racing: the speed, the competition, everything.’ Jess grew up in Poole, Dorset, and showed talent in several sports, including netball, hockey and football, which she played for Reading. Aged just 12 years old, Jessica was crowned British Karting Champion and in 2008 won the Honda Cadet British Open Championship. A podium in the 2014 Michelin Clio Cup followed, with a hard-fought runner-up place the Mini Challenge title in 2017.

Never losing her passion for racing, Jessica became a pro stunt driver with Fast and the Furious Live and the James Bond film, ‘No Time to Die’ under her belt. She’s also a Guinness World Record holder.

Being part of an all-British team with Alice Powell is great and I can’t wait to get started this year after a good pre-season. Bristol Street Motors does a fantastic job to promote women in the industry, so it’s great that they have a W Series team and I’m proud to be with them.
