Jimmy Blumer was a former British Touring Car Championship driver and class winner, having won the Class B championship in 1963. Blumer's only major contribution to the BTCC was in 1963, although he had made a single appearance in 1960.
Blumer began his racing career at the age of eighteen, entering the 1950 Monte Carlo Rally, the youngest starter at the rally that year. Blumer's career expanded to include sports cars and touring cars during the 1950s and 60s, with Blumer making his BTCC debut in 1960.
In 1960, Blumer drove at the sixth meeting of the season at Brands Hatch, using an Austin Mini Seven run by Downton Engineering Ltd. A third place finish resulted, although Blumer would not appear in the BSCC again until 1963.
Blumer was offered the chance to drive in the BRSCC six-hour endurance race at Brands Hatch, partnering Mike Parkes in his Jaguar Mk II in 1962. After this, Blumer obtained the chance to drive in the BSCC for a full season, using an Alan Andrews Racing Ford Cortina GT. After a disapointing fifth place in the second round, Blumer finished second in the third meeting, having had a race long battle with Jack Sears. After Sears left the Class to drive his Ford Galaxie, Blumer was able to take full advantage. Two wins and a second place resulted, although Blumer would not return for the final three meetings of the season, ending the season in fifth place overall and Class B champion.
