The GT Cup is designed with amateur drivers in mind, to have fun honing their race craft and develop driving skills with compatible sporting racers. Driving standards and racing enjoyment are paramount to the success of the championship and it has gained considerable recognition in this in recent years, exemplified by manufacturers entering driver pathways through the championship in recognition of these driver values.

Alex started racing cars in 2019 driving a BTCC Honda Accord and a TVR Grantura. He was coached by James Kellett throughout his first year and they developed a good driving relationship, so decided to pair up the next year in the GT Cup.
Since 2020 Alex and James have been driving the Wheldrake Classic Cars sponsored car together with Century Motorsport, and in 2021 raced in the GT Cup where they won their first race at Silverstone and went on to finish 3rd in their first ever season racing GT cars together. They are currently in their third year of the GT Cup Championship.
James’s racing career started in karts when he was 8 years old. He won his first championship at age 9, became British Champion at age 12, and continued to win championships breaking lap records that still hold today. The highlight of his karting career was winning the WKA Manufacturers Cup at the famous Daytona International Speedway in Florida, USA.
He made the move into car racing when he was 14 and in his first year won the Ginetta Junior Rookie Championship and the Winter Series Championship with a record breaking win of over 28 seconds. He went on to win the Protyre Motorsport Ginetta GT5 Challenge Championship in both 2015 and 2018, and was also awarded the BRDC Rising Star status in 2015.
In 2016, due to insufficient funding for racing, he qualified as an ARDS instructor and spent the next 2 years concentrating on instructing. However, in 2020 James returned to racing with Century Motorsport, and alongside Alex Stevenson raced in the GT Cup where they won their first race at Silverstone and went on to finish 3rd in their first ever season racing GT cars together.
