Luke Hilton teams up with Valour Racing for 2024 Radical title assault

April 24, 2024

Luke Hilton, the most recent addition to MBP’s driver portfolio, is set to team up once more with Valour Racing for a title assault in the 2024 Hagerty Radical Cup UK and build upon the already impressive start to his fledgling car racing career.

The 16-year-old, hailing from Essex, enjoyed a fast paced 2023 campaign making the step up from a successful karting career look straightforward. Multiple victories, pole positions and fastest laps saw Hilton make a lasting impression in the Fiesta Junior Championship.

Luke’s impressive season also saw him head to Portimao in October that year, where he made his competitive debut in the Radical SR3 at the seven-day World Finals at the Algarve circuit. Surpassing all expectations, the youngster finished as Vice World Champion. Luke would then follow this up with another mighty performance to kickstart his 2024 campaign, claiming two victories in the Gulf Radical Cup, putting him in good stead for the season ahead.

Luke’s title challenge will see him join forces with the professional and highly accomplished Valour Racing outfit in a season that will see him racing around the UK’s most loved tracks from Silverstone to Oulton Park. This year will also include Luke racing on the coveted TOCA package, alongside the BTCC at Donington Park, Snetterton and Oulton Park respectively.

2024 looks set to be an extremely exciting season for the young racer and Luke is certainly raring to get going:

“I am delighted to be teaming up with Valour Racing for the upcoming season, who have a brilliant reputation in the series and their knowledge will be invaluable as the season progresses. We’ve had a fantastic start to 2024 already with that double victory at Yas Marina and our pre-season testing programme has been very positive.”

“Getting the opportunity to race alongside the BTCC and several other high profile championships on the TOCA package this season will be a real highlight and I’m looking forward to getting down to business and giving it everything as we aim for that title!”

Looking forward to the season ahead, CEO of MBP, Mark Blundell is excited to see Luke get behind the wheel, for what looks set to be an exciting year ahead.

“Luke has wasted no time in making an impression already in cars and this has been evident with his most recent performances behind the wheel. The Radical Cup is a highly competitive championship, but I am sure Luke’s professionalism and dedication will shine through as he looks to challenge for the title this season.”

Luke’s campaign kick starts at Donington Park this weekend on the 27-28th of April.
