‘Team of the Year’ 2010’ and the ‘Challenge Shield Award’ 2010, which is
awarded to the highest point scorer who hasn’t made an appearance on the

In 2007 we made our debut into the Pickup
Truck Racing Championship, with our magenta,
blue and green truck, under the new number of
#37 and team name Relssert Racing. After a
hard years work Neil won the ‘Rookie
Championship’ and Larissa (the youngest Pickup
Truck spotter ever and also Neils daughter)
was nominated for spotter of the year just
missing out. In Neil’s first year in the
championship he had an top finish at Pembrey
where he came 12th, and 14th out of 31 drivers
in the Overall Championship.

Testing a Baby Grand ‘MASCAR’
Neil tested a baby grand at Swaffham, it was
a great day with Neil putting in lap times of just
17 seconds, after long consideration however
we decided to continued in the National
Legend Car Racing Championship.

National Legend Car Racing Championship
In 2003 Neil did his first ever race meeting joining the National Legend Car
Racing Championship, his first meeting took place at Rockingham Motor Speedway
on 21/22nd June at a British Touring Car Meeting, in front of over 25,000 people.
Before this Neil had never raced anything, his only experience was mechanicing
in Brisca F1 Stockcar when he was younger.

Our race number in the National Legend Car Championship was #76, we ran under
the team name Montana Motorsport, which came from our much loved pet
weimaraner Montana who sadly pass away shortly after we started racing
Legends, she loved sitting in the driver seat as we worked on the car so we though
it would be a fitting tribute to her to name the team after her.
We raced Legends for four years in total, two half years in 2003 and 2006, and
two full years in 2005 and 2006. Overall Neil made 125 race starts and had a
total of 4555 career points.
