Bradley Gravett has set his focus firmly on challenging for top honours in the Vertu MINI CHALLENGE after confirming his return to the series for 2024 with multiple champions EXCELR8.

Gravett, the son of former BTCC champion Robb, joined forces with EXCELR8 towards the end of the 2022 season and went on to enjoy the most successful year of his racing career to date in 2023 in what was his third season in the category.

Only missing out on a podium during the opening weekend of the season at Donington Park after a technical issue, Bradley wasted little time in breaking into the top three – picking up the first podium finish of his career in the very next meeting at Brands Hatch.

From there, he would go on to score a further podium finish at Oulton Park – where he also qualified on the front row of the grid – and would pick up a first fastest lap at Silverstone late in the season.

Having ended the year sixth in the championship standings, Bradley now heads into the 2024 season not only chasing a first race win, but also with the goal of challenging for the coveted championship title against a high-quality field of rivals.

In a further boost ahead of the new season, Bradley has also re-signed as part of EXCELR8’s Driver Development programme, which will provide him with the opportunity to continue working alongside the Team Bristol Street Motors BTCC outfit.

With his long-term career goal being to follow in his father’s footsteps and compete in Britain’s premier racing series, the development role will enable Bradley to gain further knowledge and experience to help him as he bids to move up the motorsport ladder in the coming seasons.

Bradley Gravett said:
“There is no doubt that last season was the best of my career so far, and I feel I took a big step forward as a driver. Scoring my first podium was an amazing feeling, particularly at my home circuit, and I showed that I have the pace to run at the front of the grid on merit – which isn’t something I’d been able to say before.

“My performances last year gave me a lot of confidence going into the winter, and after a lot of hard work with my amazing partners to put the budget in place, I’m delighted to be returning to the JCW grid again in 2024.

“I feel there is a bit of unfinished business for me as I’m still chasing that first win, but I feel confident that I’ll be able to tick that box this season. Staying with EXCELR8 means I’m with the best team, and we can benefit from all the work that has gone in since I joined them in late 2022 and fight not only for wins, but also push for the title.

“Extending my deal to be a Development Driver is also a big boost going into the new season because it is no secret that the BTCC is where I ultimately want to be in the future, and the knowledge I can gain from having close ties to such a successful team can only be of benefit.”

Justina Williams, EXCELR8 Team Owner, said:
“We’re really pleased to confirm Bradley will remain part of our JCW line-up for 2024. Last season he produced some really impressive results on track and with a little bit more luck on his side, I have no doubt he would have taken a race win.

“That’s got to be the first target going into the new season but I’m also confident that Bradley will be amongst the contenders for overall honours when we get to the business end of the year. I know how hard he has worked behind the scenes to secure his place on the grid and look forward to seeing him battle to achieve his goals.”
