After a small amount of open wheel racing in Formula Ford, Hines 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 led the championship after a pair of wins at Mondello Park. Hines and Kimber-Smith ended the year second in the standings, missing out on the title by just two points. Hines returned to British GT in 2008, partnering Jeremy Metcalfe in a Ferrari F430 GT3 and finishing runner-up a second time. He raced partial seasons in 2012, 2013 and for a final year in 2014, in which he earned a podium at Rockingham Motor Speedway.
Hines has established kart racing team AllStars Racing, announcing in April 2018 that he would be working with 10-year-old Deaf racer Caleb McDuff in preparation for McDuff's campaign in the 2018 Super 1 National Kart Championships.
