RJN Motorsport partnered with Nissan, and Neville gave winners of Nissan’s GT Acadamy – the first major gamer-to racer competition – their first taste of competitive racing, typically in GT4 cars. He also ran Buncombe in touring cars before RJN was set up.
Neville remains in charge of the day-to-day operation of the team, and his initials remain as part of the team name.
“Everything goes through Bob,” says Button. “We’d be nowhere without Bob.”
The team’s first British GT season saw it in championship contention, and there was a final race cameo by Button and Buncombe in a second car.
This year brings a DTM campaign, with more ambitious plans to come. Button reveals more about his plans to carry the Rocket RJN name to success in international racing in the March 2021 issue of Motor Sport.
