Louie Capozzoli is the latest driver to announce his debut in the 2023 Milltek Sport Civic Cup, where the former MINI Challenge driver will drive an Area Motorsport-run Civic EP3.

Having secured the 2021 MINI Challenge Rookie title and Vice-Champion, Louie is already experienced in racing in close quarters with single-make tin-top machinery, giving him preparation for the Civic Cup always offers and duly provides: Close quarter single-make racing.

Starting the season with multiple champions Area Motorsport offers the best chance for Louie to hit the ground running as the Civic Cup moves to a single class this year with everyone running in Cup Class Civics.

The Civic Cup returns for 2023 and as a recognised feeder series to the TCR UK Touring Car Championship, is an opportunity for Louie to work his way up the ladder, which he is excited about being a part of.

“I’m so excited to announce that I will be competing in the 2023 Milltek Sport Civic Cup, where I am driving for Area Motorsport in my debut season. I’m really looking forward to racing in this exciting and competitive championship.”

“I realise that I’m joining a large and competitive grid for this year, however, I’m looking forward to the challenge ahead of me. Being a pack of the support package also means that I can look to the future with TCR UK on the horizon, seeing how competitive that grid is already. With the vast experience of Area Motorsport, I look forward to getting up to speed quickly and being one of the front runners.”

Rob Baker, Team Principal of Area Motorsport, is delighted to have Louie on board for the new season.

“We’re excited to have a proven talent in Louie with the team for 2023. Louie has already displayed his talents through Karting and by becoming Mini Challenge Vice Champion in 2021. We’re looking forward to getting out testing shortly and getting Louie comfortable with the car so he can push to run at the sharp end straight away at round one.”
