Jason Hughes

This article For the Welsh actor of the same name, see Jason Hughes (actor).

Jason Hughes (born July 27, 1969) is the owner-driver of the Kartworld Racing (also known as KWR) auto racing team, which has competed in the BTCC since 2003. In 1999 Jason was BRSCC Fiesta Champion, and first entered the BTCC with a Nissan Primera in the Production Class.

Moving up into the main Touring Class for 2004 he raced in an MG ZS, finishing 17th . He did a partial season in 2005 (scoring enough points to come 13th overall in a smaller field), but returned to running the full schedule in 2006. For the second half of the season Jason has converted his MG to run on bio-ethanol instead of regular petrol, joining Fiona Leggate in using the alternative fuel. On 3rd September 2006 Hughes took his best ever result of 4th, at Knockhill in Scotland.

Hughes continued to drive his bio-ethanol powered MG in 2007, with Leggate in a second car. The team were beset with problems but Jason scored Overall points several times, with both cars scoring in the independants championship. For 2008 Hughes agreed to purchased a Honda Integra from veteran racer David Pinkney, but a sponsor failed to pay up, forcing him to continue with the MG, which received an engine upgrade midseason.
