"I was extremely fortunate to have Jay and Kate recommended to me for my first steps in race driving. Providing expert tuition, testing, hospitality, contacts for kit and endless advice, they also run their team like a close family, really looking after all their customers and staff. Our car in this my starting season was 100% reliable and finished every race, while my more experienced Team 7 team mates were able to set fastest outright laps. Not only are they a great team, all now friends, but some of the nicest and hardest working people in the business"

"Team 7 and The FunCup Academy is a professional outfit with great staff and a family feel. Jay has coached me from karting into the transition of car racing and has done a thorough and professional job. His coaching has been second to none and has ensured that I had the confidence before my first race. The coaching hasn’t stopped and throughout the year I have been able to improve due to Jay`s coaching and encouragement."

"Team 7 racing are a professional and slick outfit that take pride in preparing excellent race cars. The team works quickly and efficiently resolving issues with the cars during a race to ensure drivers always have a competitive car. 2017 has been a great first year with some good results, I look forward to building on these successes with the team in 2018."

"We had met Jay previously at a track day and at this point I cannot stress how outstanding an instructor Jay is. Cool, calm and extremely encouraging we both just got faster and faster every lap thanks to his advice. "

"Jay and I have been team mates over the last 20 years in TVR Tuscans, British GT, Britcar Endurance and 24 hour racing along with a number of seasons in the Fun Cup series.

I met Jay all those years ago when attending a track day at Jonathan Palmers Bedford venue, he instructed my guest drivers and even took me out for a session.

I knew immediately that I would have to convince him to join my team as my number one driver such was his obvious talent, transparent friendly character, combined with focused determination and prowess. I can say with hand on heart that one can count on the fingers of one’s hand, the number of people in the motorsport business that are trustworthy, reliable and above all, honest. Jay is at the top of that list and I hope to continue to race with him for as many years as my now quite advanced age will allow.

Team7Racing run by Jay and his wife, the wonderfully supportive Kate, have developed a team that within a family centred environment produces results par excellence I cannot recommend them more highly. "

"I was very glad to have chosen Team7Racing for my first year in motorsport - Jay, Kate and the whole team are unfailingly welcoming, professional and supportive. ... It was more like joining a big, happy motor racing family! "
