Luke Hines (born 4 May 1982 in Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire) is a British auto racing driver, he is the son of former karting champion and Zip Kart founder/owner Martin Hines.[1] After a small amount of open wheel racing in Formula Ford, Luke entered the Production Class of the BTCC in 2003, with the Barwell Motorsport team. He was the class champion in a field of five full-time drivers. He did enough to be noticed by Vauxhall, who signed him for a 2004 assault on the Touring Class, when he won 2 races and finished 10th overall. In 2005 he switched to the SEAT team, moving up a place to 9th with 1 race win. For 2006 he moved to the British GT Championship driving a Panoz Esperante for the LNT team. He immediately established himself as one of the front runners along with his team mate Tom Kimber-Smith and at the halfway point of the championship, Luke and Tom are leading the points standings from the Scuderia Ferrari team.
