Jake’s immense talent was established early in his career winning multiple MSA British Karting Championships, the U18 World Karting Championship, the Formula Renault Northern European Cup and the prestigious McLaren BDRC Autosport Award. At the time of winning in 2012, Dennis was the youngest ever recipient of the prize.
The 25-year-old’s vast racing career developed into single-seaters with two years in the FIA Formula 3 European Championship with highly successful teams Carlin and PREMA, as well as a year in GP3 (Now Formula 3) with Arden in 2016.
His move into GT racing the following year proved a fruitful decision, achieving multiple podiums for WRT Audi. Off the back of this success, and around the same time as his move to R-Motorsport Aston Martin Racing Team, Jake was selected as a Simulator and Development driver for Aston Martin Red Bull Racing. This led to a testing session with the four-time F1 Constructors’ Champions at the Circuit de Catalunya in May 2018.
From 2018 until 2020, Jake drove for R-Motorsport, competing with the team in a wide range of top championships such as the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters (DTM), the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup and the Intercontinental GT Challenge, continuously proving himself as gifted behind the wheel.
Besides a win and podium finishes in the Blancpain GT Series one of Jake’s most remarkable race performances was his pole position and second place finish in Bathurst 12-Hours with R-Motorsport in the 2019 season
After his 2020 campaign with R-Motorsport was ruined by the Coronavirus pandemic, Jake dedicated his racing season to simulator driving for Aston Martin Red Bull Racing.
In October of last year, it was announced that Jake would partner Max Gunther at BMW I Andretti for the seventh season of Formula E in 2021.
