In 2003 Neil competed in his first ever race meeting joining the National Legend Car Racing Championship.

Before this Neil had never raced anything with his only experience mechanicing in Brisca F1 Stockcar when he was younger.
Running under the team name Montana Motorsport, which came from our much loved weimaraner Montana who sadly pass away shortly after we started racing Legends, she loved sitting in the race seat as we worked on the car so we though it would be a fitting tribute to her to name the team after her. In total we raced Legends for four years, with two part seasons in 2003 and 2006, and two full seasons in 2005 and 2006. Overall Neil made 125 race starts and had a total of 4555 career points.
