James Reilly

Endurance racing driver from Canterbury, UK

My name is James Reilly.

I am an endurance racing driver from Canterbury, Kent – and currently the youngest driver in Europe to complete a 24hr motor race.

Since I was 8 years old I have loved racing – karting with Junior Club at Buckmore Park, then Graduates at Bayford Meadows and Junior Rotax Max as an owner/driver.

C1 Racing

I moved to senior racing in 2022 with the C1 Racing Club - the most popular (and fun!) endurance category in the UK.

In May 2022 I was the youngest driver in the Silverlake C1 Endurance Series 24hr at Silverstone, completing just over 7hrs driving including taking the chequered flag.

In December 2023 I will take part in my first international event, the C1 Eurocup 24hrs of Portimao.

Club Racing

During 2022 I also drove a BMW E30 in selected rounds of the multi-class ClubSport Trophy and SuperSport Endurance with the BRSCC, plus the Future Classics series with the Classic Sports Car Club.
