Conceived by Alan and Geoff Letts in 1991, LettsRace was formed initially to campaign the Group N Saloon Car Championship.


When the cost of Group N became prohibitive, the brothers decided to head for a series where the racing was ultra competitive, but the costs reasonable.


The logical choice was the Mini 7 Challenge and, after a couple of trial seasons running one car, the team emerged in 1999 with two identical front running cars.


From 2000 to 2006 the team developed to the point where both drivers consistently fought for race wins and consistently finished in the top 10 at each round.


Highlights of these 6 seasons of Mini 7 racing included Geoff’s back to back wins at Spa in 2006, championship finishes of 7th for Alan and 3rd for Geoff in 2005, and 5th for Alan and 3rd for Geoff in 2006.


For 2007 the brothers left Mini 7 in order to pursue the dream of owning and racing a Lotus Cortina. Most of that year was spent preparing the car for it’s first outing at Daytona International Speedway, Florida, USA. The car performed well at Daytona earning the team a 2nd place finish.


Since 2010 they’ve contested the prestigious U2TC series for historic touring cars with an engine capacity of up to 2 litres, for more information on the series please follow the link: www.historicmotorracingnews.com


Having developed the car to the point where they consistently qualify in the top ten, 2015 saw us achieve our first podium finish at the prestigious Spa Classic meeting. With improved reliability in 2016 we had a top 5 car at each race and finished joint 3rd overall in the championship.


2017 continued the success of 2016. Top 5 at Donington was followed up with 2nd in class and 3rd overall at Brands. A class win at Nurburgring was the best result of year but the car ran well whenever it hit the track.


This year we hope to develop the car a little further in order to contest wins. Fastest Cortina in qualifying at Imola in April boded well until the gearbox let us down in the race. Another podium finish at Brands continued the good results and repeating the win at Nurburgring has proven we have a winning formula.
