My passion is motorsport and I’ve dedicated the last three years to my motorsport career and I’ve been very lucky to have parents who understand the commitment required to be dedicated to such a demanding sport. I had a relatively short but successful karting career between the age of 12 and 15 and was always focused on racing cars and made the move into car racing four years ago at the age of 16 when I competed at the front of the 2017 U.K. Mini JCW Championship with ExcelR8 Motorsport; and for 2018 I stepped up to European racing in the European TCR Championship with Hyundai and double German TCR champions Target Competition’ racing at the front alongside some very experienced regional TCR champions.
For 2019 we opened a new chapter of racing with Porsche Motorsport and Force Racing "it was a really exciting move to rear wheel drive super cars. Porsche has been a life-long dream and it was great to be lining up on the grid, alongside the establishment of Porsche Cup drivers. I would like to thank everyone at Porsche Motorsport and Force and especially the Porsche Talent Pool coaches for their support throughout this season; i would also like to extend a special thanks to all my sponsors and supporters for a very challenging season".
Duarte Félix DaCosta development coach, commented; “Reece has just completed two massive years in Europe with some very experienced racers and has learned a lot which will help his 2020 campaign. We have work with Jeremy at JDX Racing over the winter and to continue with Porsche was just the right fit; and with partners including Shell TapUp, Byers Porsche, Oakley and Klean Athlete we will be pushing for a strong 2020 season.
As I continue to prioritise my motorsport career I keep myself busy with winter preparations and also as a junior project manager I’m looking forward to developing these skills with the teams at Shell TapUp and Byers Porsche and in my spare time I continue to help with fundraising activities as part of the worthy Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity.
My other interests include graphical designing, electronics and aerodynamics; and my outdoor activities include mountain biking, road biking and rock climbing.
