John Creasey


projects

Team principle John Creasey has built PP Motorsport from his Lincoln based automotive body repair business, Paint Perfect. He started with a Peugeot 106 Gti to have some fun on track days and quickly got the racing bug. After passing his ARDS test he entered the Michelin Clio Cup Series running a Clio 197 in the Road Sport category. He finished his first season by taking the Novice, Road Sport, trophy meanwhile Anton won the overall, Road Expert, trophy with Westbourne. The following year John competed again in the Road Series and brought Anton on board as a driver coach. Before the end of the year the team had expanded and Anton was competing the Race Expert category. In 2016 John took the decision to take a year out of racing to concentrate on the management of the team as it progressed into the UK Clio Cup. He and Anton work closely when providing driver training and in 2016 PP Motorsport driver training had its first student successfully pass their ARDS test.
