Younger Neal son joins Mini Chal­lenge

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Will Neal, the youngest son of Bri­tish Tour­ing Car racer Matt, will make his full sea­son de­but in the Mini Chal­lenge this week­end.

Neal will take over the Cooper Class car that his el­der brother Henry raced in the cham­pi­onship last sea­son. Henry has grad­u­ated into the faster F56 JCW class for this sea­son. Both Neals will be run un­der the fam­ily Team Dy­nam­ics ban­ner.

Will Neal, who works as an en­gi­neer for the BTCC team, said: “I went to Uni so I’m later into rac­ing than Henry was. I al­most wish we’d both done it last year as we could have pushed each other on.

“Henry will help me out with learn­ing things and then next year, if he is still in the JCWS, I will be there too. I’ve done a few Scot­tish Leg­ends races be­fore and then I went to work on V8 Supercars in Aus­tralia.

“My am­bi­tion is to make it into the BTCC one day, but right now I just want to get out on track and fin­ish some races and learn as I go.”
