Hill has always lived life in the fast lane, being the son of famous race driver Graham Hill, who tragically died in a plane crash when Damon was 15. Despite this tragedy Damon continued to pursue his love of speed and actually started his career on motorbikes rather than cars, however he soon decided that this wasn’t for him and switched to single seater racing cars and then onto Formula 3000. After securing a job as a test driver for Formula One William’s racing team it wasn’t long before he secured a position in the race team. He retired from racing in 1999 never being able to get the better of rival Michael Schumacher. Since retiring Hill has launched several successful businesses as well as succeeding Jackie Stewart as president of the British Racing Driver’s Club during which time he secured a 17 year contract for Silverstone to hold Formula One Races, which has enabled the race track to receive funding to enable it to make extensive changes.
