My name is Neil Cogan. My lifelong ambition is to become a professional racing driver and eventually compete in the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC). I currently hold a racing license and have tested in many different varieties of racing which I feel has given me more experience and knowledge of the sport and what is required to be successful. I have been go-karting since I was six years old in various karts and at various venues. At my local go-karting venue I have consistently finished no lower than third position, producing equal lap times every lap and I was therefore invited to compete for a NKA karting championship. My recent racing history includes testing in an MG ZR and competing in a Renault Clio scholarship where there were two timed sessions and my quickest lap time improved by 2.5 seconds from the first session to the second. I have also recently competed in successful MINI Cooper Challenges at Oulton Park and Donington Park. I am eager to take the next step in my racing career and compete in a professional championship.
I am raising the target funds to compete in Renault UK Clio Cup testing (at one of the circuits listed below and date TBC) with the aim to raise the relevant funds to compete for a full season in the Renault UK Clio Cup in 2018.
Brands Hatch (Kent)
Donington Park (Derby)
Oulton Park (Cheshire)
Croft (North Yorkshire)
Everyone who donates for testing would have their name and picture (subject to full sesason funding) on my race car which will make up the cars livery. E.g. picture size dependant on number of donators
Everyone who donates for the testing will be invited to the test day (should you be able to attend), as well as be entered into a prize draw to win a pair of weekend general admission tickets to their local circuit (subject to full funding for the season).
I am raising the target fund to cover the cost of the car hire, circuit hire and team fees.
The test session will provide me with the opportunity to familiarize myself with the car, team and circuit, as well obtain the perfect car setup for myself so I am fully prepared for the season (should I be able to raise the relevant funds). It will also provide me with the perfect opportunity to display my talents.
