Historic racer and former Thruxton instructor Claire boasts 20 years' experience of race and event management, including numerous 24-hour races, and was the force behind the old Britcar for some 10 years before leaving to raise a family. Claire is now heading the revamped Britcar organisation, generating revitalised enthusiasm for customers and staff, and taking it forward with new style.
Professional driver and IT consultant Rob has been contracted by some of the world's blue-chip multi-nationals and is married to MD Claire. He comes into race championship management bringing a wealth of hands-on experience which includes single-seater racing in the USA and a host of appearances in Britcar and classic racing through the years, utilising these skills when drafting and developing the regulations. Rob has also recently discovered a new vocation as a pitlane commentator.
Accounts & Admin Manager
Sarah has been with the new Britcar since the very beginning and is thoroughly enjoying watching the Championship grow. Passionate about customer service, fanatical about finances and an all-round 'Miss Moneypenny', she is thrilled to be part of an exciting environment!!
David returns to the Britcar fold for the 2019 season as our technical manager. His instructional books on competition driving and preparation are renowned in the sector, and more recently he has played a senior role in driving and engineering instruction for the Aston Martin factory, as well as continuing as a freelance driver coach.
Chris is responsible for incoming requests for anything regarding our drivers, teams and the Championships themselves, outgoing press releases, organising media accreditation. Salsa-dancing, tart-eating IT wizard Chris also enjoys a spot of photography, and has raced since 2012, mostly in Porsches; as well as two seasons in Britcar he finished 4th in class in the 2016 Hankook 24 hours of Silverstone.
Woody has been Britcar's wordsmith from the very start in 2002, and has rejoined this year after a short absence. With published work in all major UK motorsport magazines and websites, Steve digs for the news and files reports on all the Britcar championships, lending his experience of over 50 years of motorsport history. When not slaving over his keyboard, this Production Engineer and former magistrate is partial to a bit of Motown and Reggae.
Quiet, unassuming, but supremely talented, Paul has been snapping at Britcar events from the very first season in 2002, and has provided some iconic images over the years, not just on-track action, but candid paddock and pit-garage shots too, with a unique artistic flair.
Assistant Championship Co-Ordinator
Julieann has experience and enthusiasm for motorsport, having for many years been coordinating for the Fiesta Junior Championship and the Smarts4U series. Essentially Claire's right-hand woman, assertive without being authorative, she ensures that things run smoothly on race weekends.
aka Bear. Widely known as one of the most dedicated blokes ever to wear orange. From East Kilbridge - just south of Glasgow - his home location doesn't stop him from attending race meetings all over the country. Equipped with an irrepressible sense of humour, he is alleged to be fond of the odd wee dram.
Assistant Championship Co-Ordinator
Daughter of Juliann and Paul, Maisie comes to us with the organisational skills picked up from involvement in the Fiesta Junior Championship and on race day covers hospitality, pit lane, administration, set up and driver and team briefing presentations.
Colin has been with Britcar since 2004, and boasts nearly 20 years of experience, taking in all aspects of race marshalling, in series ranging from F1 through WEC, BTCC, F3 and British GT. Colin is the go-to guy for raceday logistics in the paddock and pitlane.
John entered the Britcar fold in 2004 after several years of marshalling, which he still performs on non-Britcar weekends at tracks around the country. A horticulturist by trade, John is part of the team responsible for pitlane and paddock matters.
Married to John Peat, Tori is also an adept trackside and pitlane marshal, and lends her experience to practical and administrative matters on Britcar racedays.
