Racing career

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, kicking off the weekend with pole position (read more).

Now, Josh is contesting the 2024 FIA World Endurance Championship with McLaren Automotive and United Autosports, racing in the #95 entry with Marino Sato and Nico Pino.
