Josh Caygill is an endurance racing driver from Yorkshire who has celebrated on the podium in the Audi TT Cup, Blancpain GT Series and the European Le Mans Series.
For Josh, it started with motorbikes. His dad bought him a bike when he young, kickstarting a passion for racing and a dream to ride in the British Superbike Championship.
Caygill went on to contest numerous two-wheel series’, starting with motocross in 2000, and becoming a familiar face on the British biking scene. Twelve years of motorbike racing culminated in two consecutive seasons in the British Supersport Championship (2011-2012) before Caygill decided to shift his focus.
In 2013, he made the move into motorcar racing, racing in the VW Racing Cup in the same year. In 2014, on his first foray into endurance racing, Caygill claimed second in class at the Dunlop 24 Hour Dubai race.
The Yorkshire racer has since lined up in a range of motorsport championships, from the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup (2017) to the British Touring Car Championship (2018) and the Porsche Carrera Cup GB (2021).
In 2022, Josh Caygill took on the challenge of prototype racing, driving in the European Le Mans Series with Yorkshire-based team United Autosports. In 2023, Caygill rejoined the team for a one-off LMP3 special at the Le Mans Cup Aragon. Josh kicked off the weekend with his first ever pole position, before a mid-race power issue sadly snatched the lead from Caygill and Aussie pro Garnet Patterson (read more).
Josh is a fellow Yorkshireman so there's already a good connection there.

The trio secured third-place at the opening round in Paul Ricard – which was later upgraded to second place after Inter Europol was disqualified - and celebrated another podium at the finale in Portimao (read the race report).
When he’s not racing, Josh likes to keep active - usually training or cycling - and spending time with his wife and young family.
