Laser Tools Racing Announces Partnership with Rising Star Nelson King in the Mini Challenge

At the young age of 20, Nelson King has emerged as an extraordinary talent within the motorsport arena. Starting from a successful karting background, Nelson's transition into car racing has been nothing short of exceptional. His devotion, grit, and single-minded pursuit of excellence have charted his course towards a promising future in British motorsport.

Having a proven track record in the Mini Challenge series, Nelson's journey is testament to his consistent progress and noteworthy accomplishments. In 2021, he finished in an impressive 10th place in the Mini Challenge Trophy category. Undeterred, Nelson elevated his game further and clinched the Mini Challenge Trophy Graduate Champion title the following year in 2022. Not stopping at that, he won the overall championship with a lead of almost 200 points over the second-placed competitor. These victories are a strong reflection of his ability to thrive amidst stiff competition, and they pave the way for his future success.

For the 2023 season, Nelson elevated his game to compete in the demanding JCW category of the Vertu Motors MINI CHALLENGE, rubbing shoulders with more seasoned racers. Even though he is a newcomer in this class, Nelson's outstanding performance has set him apart, demonstrating his outstanding driving talent, adaptability, and innate potential. His first season has already witnessed him securing a podium in his debut race and a splendid victory at Snetterton in May. These feats cement his stature as a potential motorsport prodigy. Nelson's car is handled and maintained by the efficient team at Graves Motorsport.

As the 2023 season unfolds, Nelson continues to shine in the JCW category, capturing the attention of motorsport aficionados and industry professionals. Laser Tools Racing is thrilled to join Nelson on his journey and anticipates many shared successes ahead. Nelson is exhilarated to share, "I'm absolutely thrilled to announce that I'll be joining forces with Laser Tools Racing in my pursuit of the Vertu Motors MINI CHALLENGE title for the remainder of the 2023 season. As an iconic presence in the BTCC, it's an immense honour to become part of their team. I am deeply grateful for the confidence they've demonstrated in me and I'm eager to represent this prestigious brand on the track."

Martin Smith, Chairman of Laser Tools, remarks, "We are delighted to partner with Nelson King in the Mini Challenge JCW category. Nelson's talent, determination, and impressive results make him a perfect fit for our team. We look forward to providing him with the support and resources needed to further his racing career and to witness his continued growth and success."

Nelson's next race in the Vertu Motors MINI CHALLENGE will be at Knockhill during the weekend of 12-13 August, where he will represent Laser Tools Racing.
