Team BRIT is a competitive motor racing team consisting of disabled drivers.  Many are ex or serving military troops who have sustained serious injuries and are disabled.

We are a competitive racing team, not a charity, and we race against teams of able-bodied drivers on a totally level playing field — something that no other sport can offer.

We aim to make racing history and take a team to the world famous Le Mans 24hr endurance race, becoming the first ever all-disabled team to do so.

Many of our drivers have taken part in karting events through our linked charity, KartForce.  Team BRIT provides the opportunity for them to step up to competitive endurance racing.

How?

Our drivers undertake an intensive driver development programme to hone their driving skills to the level required to compete against experienced drivers.

In 2017 we raced in the Fun Cup series.  Racing in identical-spec cars, teams take part in endurance races ranging from 4-8 hours.  We also took part in the Spa Francorchamps Race in Belgium in July, a 25 hour race, known as 'the longest race in the world'.

In 2018 we continued in the Fun Cup and began GT4 racing in our Aston Martin V8 Vantage.  Drivers Warren McKinlay and Jamie Falvey made history by being the first all-disabled team to race on the famous Le Sarthe Circuit at Le Mans.  They races in the Aston Martin Le Mans Festival, held just prior to the annual endurance race.

In 2019 we are racing the Aston Martin in the Britcar Championship and our rookies are taking part in the BMW 116 Trophy in our BMW 1 series cars.  

We hope to progress to GT3 racing, taking us one step away from Le Mans.

We aim to:

  • Normalise disability
  • Rebuild confidence through competition and teamwork
  • Provide an opportunity for professional development within motorsport as a whole, by teaching drivers the business of sponsorship, revenue generation and vocational training
  • Enhance recovery and rehabilitation through intense and testing environments and through the adaptation of disability to different environments
  • Inspire members of the disabled community through the demonstration of what can be achieved in the face of adversity.

Our Racing Academy also offers disabled drivers a totally unique opportunity to access motorsport through track days and full ARDS courses. 

Our project will show military veterans, disabled people and the world, that they can achieve goals they never thought they were capable of achieving.
