Military veteran and pro-racer returns to Team BRIT

Jamie Falvey, a former commando and professional racing driver has returned to his Team BRIT roots to provide support and advice to drivers as a new team coach.

Jamie, from Nottinghamshire, served in the Commandos from 2010 to 2016, to the rank of Lance Corporal. In 2016 he was medically discharged after sustaining permanent hearing damage and tinnitus, and joined Team BRIT in 2017. 

After a successful season of racing with the team, he stepped up to the top-tier Caterham 420R championship in 2019, competing in two select rounds, one at Spa and one at Silverstone, securing podiums in both events. 

Last year he competed in a professional class season in the Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 Supercup Championship with Century Motorsport where he drove to a pro-class podium at Oulton Park, two pro-class wins at Thruxton and finished with a brace of podiums at Croft and Snetterton. He also qualified as an Association of Racing Driver Schools Instructor. 

Since leaving the team, Jamie has also become a husband and a father.

Now, with his professional racing paused due to the impact of the Covid pandemic, Jamie is developing his coaching career and will be supporting Team BRIT under Head Coach, Max Coates throughout the 2021 season.

Six drivers with a range of physical and psychological challenges will be racing in the Britcar Championship across the Trophy and Endurance categories.  After a delayed start to the season, the team will hit the track for the first time at Silverstone on the 24th and 25th April.

Jamie said: 
"I'm excited to be working with Team BRIT again and helping develop the driver program further. There is some real talent in the team this year and I'm looking forward to seeing what they can produce on track together".
