Drivers

The team has two things in common; they are Regular and Reserve personnel currently serving with the British Army; and they have a huge passion for Motorsport whether that is to drive, to manage or to maintain.

Lloyd Fountain

Car – MG Maestro Turbo (Class C)

Cap Badge – Royal Engineers

In 2009 Lloyd bought an MG Maestro and competed in the MGOC as well as track days between a busy period of work and tours. A posting to Germany, more tours and subsequently Sandhurst paused his efforts. However, following a successful trial for the Army Karting Team saw him back on the track in 2018 with them.  This convinced him to re-commission his beloved Maestro once more, albeit, with a few modifications. You'll find him fixed under his bonnet most race days, preying to the mechanical MG Rover God's.

Dan Tedstone

Car – EP3 Honda Civic Type R (Class B)

Cap Badge – Royal Signals

Dan took the plunge in to racing after a lifetime of tinkering with all things mechanical, choosing a well proven chassis in the trusty EP3 Honda Civic Type R.


After 3 years of steady results Dan stepped back from racing and delved head first into the growth of the team. The bug has caught up with him once again though and he looks to put the trusty Honda back through its paces with a number of new choice modifications to take on the fastest that class B has to offer.

Will has been with the team since 2015 and in addition to driving, he also assists with the management output.  During his time in the team he has proven himself to be one of the most capable and formidable drivers in the team with numerous wins and podiums; so much so in 2018 he won a sports scholarship for his efforts. His thirst for endurance racing sees him currently competing in the Club Enduro championship in his V8 Holden Commodore alongside Matty Taylor.  Will is also an avid sim racer in his spare time.

Sy Skerton

Car - R53 Mini Cooper S (Class B)

Cap Badge - Royal Engineers

After years of competitive sport and obligatory broken bones Sy moved to Motorsport in 2018, hoping a roll cage would allow him to compete without risking further bone damage! Luckily that has been the case and he now competes within the AFRC in his trusty Mini and is looking to progress from sprint racing to endurance racing over the next few years.

Blair Thomson

Car – Renault Clio Cup 197 (Class D)

Blair dabbles between tarmac rallying and circuit racing, both as representational in Army Motorsport. Blair has regularly been at the front of the rallying scene and was awarded Army Rally champion in 2018. Blairs ability to cross deck his rally experience onto track is invaluable and is always one to watch come race day.

John joined the team in 2018 in his self-built Renault Clio Cup 182. He currently mixes it up in Class D of the AFRC and delivers solid results. John has a lovely collection of classic Fords with his MK2 RS2000 being the pride of the pack. Hopefully he’ll bring it out to race one day!

Dougie Inglis

Car – Mazda MX5 (Class D)

Cap Badge – Royal Logistics Corps

Dougie officially joined the team in August 2018 after a couple of years of spectating. Starting off in the support role he soon enough caught the bug to go jump in the drivers seat and go racing!  2019 saw him take position on the grid, achieving a life-long dream. And has gained early silverware with his quality race craft. Dougie has also been supporting the team in the Club Enduro championship where he is responsible for running the pit wall and controlling the strategy of the race. Recently for his efforts Dougie was appointed as the long-term Event Manager, responsible for ensuring all events are run smoothly.

Mark Saunders

Car –  Peugeot 206 GTI (Class D)

Cap Badge – Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers

Mark has been involved in Army Motorsport since 1998 and has seen success in both 2 and 4 wheel drive disciplines in that time.


He races a very expensive (and frankly ridiculous) Sierra Cosworth RS500 and also a very sensible Peugeot GTI. He spends every hour developing the Sierra and absolutely no time at all on the Pug! Although these cars are 2 extremes of the spectrum they are both as formidable as each other in the trusty hands of Mark.

Antony started racing in 1998 with an MG Midget, and then moved up to an MGB.

He joined the Royal Army Chaplains’ Department in 2005 and eventually the old racer went to a new home in Europe and was replaced once more with a 1963 MG Midget.
