Driven to Win
Champion drivers aren’t just born - they’re selected, trained, molded and tested. At Limitless Motorsport we hone raw talent to maturity with quality coaching and a true love of the sport.
Teamwork, perseverance, sportsmanship - those are the hallmarks of the Limitless Team.
We have three drivers racing next season (2020) in club level racing, with a target of winning one club race series overall and achieving silverware in 75% of the rounds that we compete in.
Historical records attest to this being achievable if we can keep the race cars reliable and out on track.
We are building a relationship with MSUK to provide a consultancy service for them to give guidance on matters of disability, it turn we shall also receive media coverage to the benefit of any sponsors that we may have.
Our annual goal for next year is to introduce over 150 people to our experience days, where people can drive a specially modified race car on different race tracks across the UK and in Europe.
We have a Rookie program where we would like to increase the number of candidates to 12. The program is designed to instruct and guide drivers to increase their on track skills and develop an understanding of race craft, to assure a high level of safety is achieved, before applying for a race license.
We are also currently building go-karts for Junior racers to use and hone their skills.

Justin is an army veteran of 18 years and was medically discharged with PTSD which has a side effect of hypersensitivity of the nerve endings in his legs.
Justin has always been a petrol head and loved fast cars, including racing BMW M3’s while serving in Germany. With the medical issues he had to give it all up and thought his racing days were over.
Justin started karting with Kartforce and found that the buzz of racing was still there and actually it was what he had been missing. Justin has been karting for a little over a year now and it was at a karting event where he met Limitless CEO and Founder Johnny and they hit it off straightaway.
Racing gives justin a real buzz which he thought he would never have again, and it is helping with both his mental and physical health.

With a mind for strategy, Johnny Dawson-Ellis looks to make Teamwork and Training key to the success of Limitless Motorsport UK.
Johnny has a strong drive and passion to give disabled people the opportunities to get behind the wheel of a racing car. He firmly believes they we are not limited by our disabilities.
Johnny broke his back in 2009 in a Motorbike accident on the way home from work. It was a severe fracture requiring quite a bit of metal work being used to reconstruct his back. A patient of Stoke Mandeville Hospital (a Specialist Spinal Unit), Johnny kept fit and not long after his accident he raised money for Charity by walking a 1/4 of a mile in special calipers.
This is just a small insight into the drive and determination of Johnny, having previously held a National Race B license, it won't be long before he is out on track, racing his able-bodied peers, and beating them.
