Scott Sumpton

Scott Sumpton started motor racing in 2015 at 10 years old. Scott competed in various club events around the UK and in the British Kart Championship, where he proved his talent, racing against more experienced drivers.


2020 was when Scott took the step up from karts to cars, competing in the Junior Saloon Car Championship. Unfortunately, owing to COVID-19, the season got off to a slow start due to not being able to test in the vehicle prior to racing and he had to learn the car whilst competing throughout the year. A positive change happened during 2021 when Scott changed teams for the last three races of the year. This is when he found leaps and bounds of time on the track and was fighting at the front.


In 2021, Scott also sat his GCSE exams. He excelled and passed all the subjects that he took. With great grades in the bag, he was then given the opportunity to join the Motorsport UK Academy Enhanced Diploma in Sporting Excellence Programme. This was an opportunity he could not say no to. There is a competitive selection process to get onto the course and Scott is proud to say that he is 1 of only 20 who got accepted. The course is tailor-made to improve driving performance and help turn drivers with potential into professional sporting athletes.


At the end of 2021 Scott was lucky enough to test various cars to see what he wanted to progress into. One of these cars was the Audi RS 3 TCR car at Donington Park and this is what blew him away! Therefore, after talking to Essex and Kent Motorsport he was able to join the team for his 2022 TCR UK campaign. 


In 2023, Scott took his career to a new level! The move into the Restart Racing's Honda Civic FK7 TCR opened up a massive door with J.A.S Motorsport where Scott became a Junior Development Driver for Honda. After a successful 2023 season in TCR UK Scott had the opportunity to take his talent abroad to TCR Spain where he was in the new Honda FL5. This was another successful campaign abroad where he secured a podium at both events.


In 2024 Scott graduates to the Kwikfit British Touring Car after two successful seasons in touring car competition, racing in 2022-2023. It is going to be a big step up, however Scott is ready for the challenenge ahead!
