Team BRIT is a competitive motor racing team consisting of drivers who are all ex or serving military troops. All our drivers have sustained serious injuries and are disabled.

We are a competitive racing team, not a charity, and we race against teams of able-bodied drivers on a totally level playing field — something that no other sport can offer.

We aim to make racing history and take a team of injured troops to the world famous Le Mans 24hr endurance race, becoming the first ever all-disabled team to do so.

Our drivers have all taken part in karting events through our linked charity, KartForce.  Team BRIT provides the opportunity for them to step up to competitive endurance racing.

How?

Our drivers undertake an intensive driver development programme to hone their driving skills to the level required to compete against experienced drivers.

In 2017 we will race in the Fun Cup series.  Racing in identical-spec cars, teams take part in endurance races ranging from 4-8 hours.  We will also take part in the Spa Francorchamps Race in Belgium in July.

In 2018 we will race in the GT4 series, before progressing to GT3, taking us one step away from Le Mans.

We aim to:

  • Rebuild confidence through competition and teamwork
  • Provide an opportunity for professional development within motorsport as a whole, by teaching drivers the business of sponsorship, revenue generation and vocational training
  • Enhance recovery and rehabilitation through intense and testing environments and through the adaptation of disability to different environments
  • Inspire members of the disabled community through the demonstration of what can be achieved in the face of adversity.

Our project will show military veterans, disabled people and the world, that they can achieve goals they never thought they were capable of achieving.
