Roger Nathan

Motorsport Legend & Tuner

Roger Nathan has been racing, constructing and tuning cars since the early 1960’s. A motorsport legend, he established himself in the industry in the 60s, racing Lotus Elites, before moving into construction and developing Hillman Imps tuning kits. Rogers first full racing season began in 1963, when, at the age of 20, he won the National Autosport Championship, establishing himself as the youngest driver to do so. He developed and used the open Costin-Nathan prototype in 1966, winning five races and setting five class lap records in the prototype.

He also drove the closed Costin-Nathan GT prototype alongside Mike Beckwith in the Le Mans 24 hours, but it was retired with electrical issues in hour five.

Not letting setbacks hold him back, Roger won 13 trophies in 1964 driving a Brabham BT8 Climax 2ltr, including the Aintree Trophy, Martini International Trophy, Daily Mirror Trophy and the Onyx Trophy – settling five new lap records along the way. He won the Ouston Gold Cup and set an outright circuit record in the same car the next year, replacing the engine with a 4.5ltr Oldsmobile V8.

From 1967, Roger has been building, modifying and developing sports cars, with notable vehicles including the Astra Climax, the Nathan GT and the Nathan Hillman GT. Roger Nathan is available to speak at conferences, racing events and dinners about his racing experience, tuning abilities, developer profile or his total of 29 international and national lap records.
