Katie Milner’s Career Highlights


Here at Reis Motorsport Insurance, we have supported Katie Milner for a number of years and the twenty year old Championship winning racing driver is already a force to be reckoned with.

 

Katie started racing from an early age and her natural ability was evident from the start. She has enjoyed success in numerous Championships, from grassroots to competitive racing, and is currently one of four drivers McLaren selected to represent the factory team in the highly competitive British GT Championship, a fantastic achievement.

 

Due to the recent pandemic, McLaren have withdrawn the two DDP Cars from the 2020 British GT line up to prepare for 2021. This means Katie will be signed for a two year contract and her focus and attention is now firmly on a title assault in 2021.

 

We can’t wait to see what 2021 brings for Katie on track and we’re excited to be a part of it.
