Nevill returns to racing
Nevill returns to racing

Following a three year break from full time competition, Kent racing driver Alex Nevill will be returning to motorsport competition on the 25th June at the Silverstone Grand Prix circuit along with the rest of the Britcar Trophy season.

Alex’s last full season in the sport was 2020 where he competed in the Mini Challenge Cooper Trophy. Despite a competitive year in which Alex and his team battled for poles, wins and the overall championship, budget constraints put him out of action at the end of the season.

Since then, Alex has focused on growing a business as a driver coach which so far has seen him help drivers to two championship wins and over 20 race wins in the last two seasons. His coaching exploits led to Alex initially joining the Dragon Sport team as a driver coach, before the Welsh team offered Alex the opportunity to step up to a drive for the rest of the season.

Alex will be joining the Britcar Trophy grid in the number 92 gen 4 Renault Clio Cup car alongside Travis Coyne, with the car sitting third in the Clio class championship after the opening three rounds where the car has claimed a win and two podiums.

The endurance format of the Britcar Trophy will see Alex and Travis share driving duties in a 2 hour endurance race at the home of the British Grand Prix, followed by four 50 minute races (with a mandatory pitstop) across the final two rounds at Snetterton and Donington Park in September and October respectively.

It’s a challenge that Alex can’t wait to begin. “It’s fair to say that this is the best opportunity I’ve had since my last season in the Mini Challenge and I can’t wait to get stuck in!

“Jumping into a championship contending car part way through a season is a huge responsibility and as such I’m hugely grateful to Rhys Lloyd (the owner of Dragon Sport) and everyone at Dragon Sport and Amigo Motorsport who’ve trusted me with this opportunity. Britcar is a fantastic championship and ultimately it’s a paddock where there could be great opportunities for me both as a driver and a coach in the future. I can’t wait to get going and show what I can do!”

Alex’s race day at Silverstone will begin with a 20 minute qualifying session at 9am with the 2 hour race scheduled to start at 2:35pm. The race will be live-streamed on the BARC (British automobile racing club)’s YouTube channel.
