Neil Primrose, Saxon Motorsport driver

Neil Primrose

Since a very young age, I have had a fascination with everything pertaining to cars, racing, and motorsport engineering.  This probably stems from my father being an engineer himself.   It is only after my subsequent successful career in the music business that I have had the opportunity to fulfil my passions for all things cars and racing.

I gained my first MSA racing licence in 2007, since then I have competed in a wide range of racing cars, prototypes, karts and even rally cars on an occasion.  During this time I have experienced the highs and lows of competition and mechanical failures, but the overriding enjoyment has come from the complete appreciation of the art of driving.

At the beginning of the year I gained my ARDS Instructor Licence and now work at Oulton Park Circuit as an MSV Instructor.  This gives me the opportunity to gain more track time in the various cars MSV have on hand and to meet new people.  I have also done some private coaching this season and as my instructor hours increase, I will be able to apply my skills more exclusively.
