About Us.

Business first, race team second.

EXCELR8 Motorsport is practically unique among race teams in that its founder, Justina Williams, has a successful background in business rather than coming from a career in motorsport.

This means the team has a far greater appreciation for the needs of our Commercial Partners than our competitors, and are as committed to delivering a return on your marketing investment as we are to achieving results on track.

The team devotes an enormous amount of effort to optimising its operations and presentation in order to provide a highly professional and marketable platform, and were recognised with a ‘Spirit of the Championship’ Award for the best dressed and most innovative garage during our maiden season in the BTCC in 2019.

Founded in 2009, a determination to succeed combined with high levels of professionalism meant that success was never far away and the team was rewarded with their first MINI CHALLENGE championship in 2010. Another 21 titles have followed, along with numerous championship runner up trophies.

Since 2014 the team has shown their ability as a constructor of expertly engineered, high performance race cars. EXCELR8 Motorsport are solely responsible for the development and production of more than 40 new JCW class cars for the MINI CHALLENGE UK, which has seen the championship go from strength to strength and secure its status as the UK’s finest one make saloon racing championship.

The quality of the cars has also gained them international recognition, leading to the formation of MINI CHALLENGE series in both Japan and China for 2019. The team have delivered another 30 cars, and have provided technical support at several exhibition races.

In 2019 the team appeared at the highest level of UK motorsport for the first time as they campaigned the venerable MG6s in the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship. Despite experiencing an extremely steep learning curve, the team approached the challenge with the same level of professionalism that has delivered such success in other series and were rewarded with 10th in the Independent Teams Championship.

In keeping with the ambitious nature of the team, and in order to accelerate progress towards their goal to be crowned BTCC champions, EXCELR8 Motorsport will design and build a pair of cars based on the Hyundai i30 Fastback N Perfomance for 2020, bringing the Korean marque to the BTCC for the first time.

TESTIMONIALS

Excelr8 Motorsports is a gem

Excelr8 Motorsports is a gem. They took Toby under their wing and basically poured in all the skills needed to run at the front in an extremely competitive series. We had support on logistics, financing, data, tyre preparation, testing, racecraft, mental prep, setup – lots and lots of setup, licencing and most importantly, sponsorship support .

All in all they are alongside you every step of the way if you need them to be, or not, depending on what you need. The team has strength in depth and a comprehensive stepping stone of series and experience that can take you from a raw novice all the way to 24hr racing, TCR or BTCC, if you can.

There are plenty of teams that take your money, or your sponsors money, and give precious little in return other than the core race support and I can tell you for a fact that Excelr8 is not like that. Anthony and Justina run a friendly, quality team with high standards of preparation and a strong sporting ethos; whether you are just starting out on your racing journey at the back of the grid or going for wins at the front everybody gets 100% support and their is no hierarchy or favouritism.

But make no mistake – If Excelr8 are on the grid, they are not there to make up the numbers, they are there to Win.

As a rookie to car racing ExcelR8 made my son feel at ease immediately. They are dedicated to what they do & nothing is ever a problem. Its a great , driven, family atmosphere the moment you walk in the awning. They deliver professionalism and results!

After an incident in the first race of the weekend we were packing up ready to go home but, without hesitation – the EXCELR8 crew loaded the car into the trailer, returned to the workshop and worked overnight to replace the whole front end of the car.

At 4.30am we received a text to say that it was all done and ready to go!

On Sunday morning the car was back in the awning looking as as good as new and we managed to race to a podium finish in Race 2 with a new lap record!

The level of service and dedication, of the team is second to none.

They really are “the best in the business”
