PROFILE JAMIE’S CAREER AS A RACING DRIVER
Jamie Green is a champion professional racing driver who has represented Mercedes and Audi at the highest level in touring cars and sportscars.
Leicester-born Jamie started his racing journey in grassroots short-oval stock cars and quickly showed the skills that would earn him 17 wins in Germany’s prestigious touring car series for manufacturers, the DTM, by sweeping to the 1992 Brisca Ministox British Championship title. The natural next step was into karts, and aged 14 Jamie marked himself out as a future star by finishing second in the 1996 British junior TKM series.
Where today it is common for drivers to step into cars in their teens, such championships were few and far between at the turn of the millennium, and Jamie remained in karts until the brink of his 20th birthday – winning the 2000 Formula A winter title before placing second in the full British Formula A championship in 2001.
For Jamie Green, motorsport and family are side by side on the front row of the grid, with his wife Ginny, his sons Zachary and William and daughter Georgiana clearly occupying pole position.
“My three kids manage to clear my mind in a very short period of time, just with a laugh or by asking me to play,” says Jamie. “They don’t care whether daddy has just won or finished in last place –that puts a lot of things back into the proper perspective."
