2023

Lydia Walmsley is a 21 year old British Racing Driver competing in the 2023 Mini Challenge UK Championship.

And Beyond...

Having started karting at 7 years old, her passion for motorsport grew. Quickly progressing through the ranks, she picked up may trophies along the way - notably winning back to back karting championships in two different classes (Minimax and Junior Rotax) in 2015 and 2016 respectively. 

At the age of 14, she began racing on the circuits in the Junior Saloon Car Championship before progressing into senior racing in the Mini Challenge Cooper class where she picked up podiums and race wins before stepping into the JCW Championship which is arguably, the most competitive single make series in the UK.

2023 Is an exciting year for Lydia with it being her third season in the Mini Challenge UK JCW Championship competing in a 275bhp JCW car. 

With all 7 weekends broadcast live on ITV4, it is without a doubt a huge platform to compete on with all races supporting the British Touring Car Championship.

Lydia and her family run team are competitive within the championship, competing against much bigger outfits and budgets. 

Lydia has ambitions of becoming a professional racing driver in the future. Her main goal is to race competitively in the British Touring Car Championship, arguably the pinnacle of British Motorsport.

She is also a qualified ARDS Instructor so spends a lot of her spare time in the passenger seat of various race cars (from Caterhams to Ferraris). 

 

Lydia hopes to become more involved in the media industry within motorsport having already worked with the ITV Sport team commentating on various races live on ITV4 in 2022 and 2021.
