Fun Cup 2017 - BEST NEWCOMER

2017 TEAM OF THE DAY, Brands Hatch

Fun Cup 2017 - Outstanding Achievement Award


Team7Racing offers a fresh new approach to car racing, providing a complete service with a professional and detailed vision.

Whether you are an experienced driver looking for those few extra 10ths or a novice driver looking for an introduction to the sport, we can advise and mentor to achieve your goals.

Our experience offers drivers the ingredients to reach the pinnacle. We work with you to improve your race craft and overall ability. Many novice drivers entering the world of Motorsport can find the experience daunting, from passing their ARDS tests, purchasing race clothing to choosing which championship to compete in.

Team7Racing can advise and support from the very start, depending on your desires and budget.

I remember entering this new world myself in the early days and just how frustrating it was not knowing how to move forward with lack of budgets, information or contacts.

I'm fortunate to have built long lasting relationships over the years with people who care and support me. With the right attitude and direction you can be competitive.

All you need is the will to win.
