The latest team to add its name to the ever-increasing Milltek Sport Civic Cup entry list is that of Pro Alloys Racing, the brand-new Wiltshire-based operation confirming it will bring two cars to the grid this season.
One of its EP3 Civics will be driven for the whole season by Owen Hillman, whilst the second will be run as a guest entry with different drivers who have achieved success at the team’s local circuit Castle Combe taking part in each round. The first of these will be Will Di Claudio, who will compete in the first Civic Cup meeting of the year at Cadwell Park, followed by Gary Prebble, Simon Norris, Josh Harvey and Adam Prebble on an event-by-event basis.
Having already put important test miles under their belts at the recent championship launch day at Brands Hatch, it became clear that the team will certainly get noticed with their colourful, eye-catching Pro Alloys livery.
Team Principal Neil Greenland is excited to be part of the Milltek Sport Civic Cup in 2022 and explains why he feels this is the right time to enter the championship for EP3 and FN2 Type-R Civics manufactured between 2001 and 2011:
“We’re making our debut in the championship this year, running my stepson Owen Hillman for the full season, as well as running the second car with a guest driver at each of the seven events.
“All of the guest drivers have plenty of experience in the national motorsport scene, giving them the chance to show what they can do in one of the UK’s most competitive single-make saloon car championships.
“I’ve been a driver myself for the last six years in both the Time Attack and Castle Combe championships. Because this season’s Civic Cup follows all of the Time Attack rounds, with one extra event at Castle Combe, it seemed a logical time to make the change. It will be a bit strange though, as instead of racing I’ll be on the sidelines managing the team. Exciting times ahead!”
