Kimura Racing’s Liona Theobald & Donovan Dyer return to Motorsport UK Academy for their Second Year

We are delighted to share that Liona & Donovan are returning to Motorsport UK Academy for their second year. Over the years, the Motorsport UK Academy has supported hundreds of young drivers in their quest to be the best, with stars such as Lando Norris, Tom Ingram and Elfyn Evans amongst the Academy alumni.

Across the Academy programmes, expert coaches, partners, and staff all work together towards a shared vision of identifying and supporting talented athletes on their motorsport journey, effectively preparing them for the world of high-performance motorsport and beyond. What makes the Academy unique, is that it provides these programmes independently at no financial cost to the athlete, and with no vested commercial interest. The only goal is developing the sport’s best talent.

Whilst only a handful of drivers will compete at the highest level, the Academy makes sure that each of its 100+ athletes leaves the programme having developed their full potential and enjoyed their experience. It is hoped that each driver will then want to remain a part of the sport for many years to come, be it as a competitor, volunteer, or part of a team.

Best of luck to both Liona & Donovan who will be continuing their respective careers both in the simulator and real life. Liona is finishing off her season in the Protyre Motorsport Ginetta GT Championship with one final round left at Donington Park on the 21st October & 22nd October. Donovan is currently 6th in the NEEM 2023 Sim Championship in the UK and is also at IDACI Motorsport Team as a Race Engineer & Technologist, helping to develop new championships in RC racing and karting. We will continue to support both of them on the next step of their journey.
