Nicholas Jon Yelloly (born 3 December 1990) is a British racing driver, who competed in several races of the 2015 FIA GP2 Series with Hilmer Motorsport. A BMW Motorsport factory driver, Yelloly would move into racing Porsches after failing to secure a full time seat in GP2, before moving into Endurance racing in 2018.
Yelloly began his racing career in karting at the age of fourteen, racing in various series until his eighteenth birthday. The winter of 2008 saw the Brit move into the Formula Renault UK Winter Series, finishing his maiden season in fourteenth. Yelloly duly switched to the full FR UK series in 2009, claiming nineteenth in that Championship.
A Slow Burn
Yelloly remained in FR UK for 2010, having finished as runner-up in the Winter Series at the end of 2009. Seventh in the full UK Series saw Yelloly secure a full season seat in the GP3 Series for 2011, although he would only manage one podium finish. Instead, Yelloly would find more joy in the Formula Renault 3.5 Series that season, claiming fourteenth in the Championship despite only attending six races.
Unsurprisingly Yelloly would stay in FR 3.5 for 2012, going on to claim fifth in the Championship with two wins. A return to GP3 followed in 2013, with the Brit improving to seventh in the Championship to secure a third season in 2014. 2014 saw Yelloly finally claim a race win in GP3, although a title bid failed to materialise to leave the Brit in sixth.

Post GP2 Series Career
Yelloly secured a seat in the Porsche Carrera Cup Germany for 2016, finishing sixth in his first season in the series. 2017 saw Yelloly challenge for the German title, ultimately finishing runner-up, a feat which he would repeat in 2018. For 2019 Yelloly would sign a deal with BMW Motorsport to become one of their factory drivers, and was duly dispatched to the China GT Series to represent the Bavarian squad.
