Nick Leason (born 23 August 1968 in Purley, London) is a British racing driver.

Career[edit]

In 2007, Leason drove in the British Touring Car Championship. Leason had initially planned to compete in the Daniels Motorsport-run Vauxhall Astra Coupe he had raced in the two final rounds of the 2006 season. However, this project was abandoned during pre-season and Leason was instead confirmed as a driver for BTC Racing in a Lexus teamed with Chris Stockton. He did not race at Croft that year[1] and after persistent reliability troubles he decided to abort his full season campaign. Leason achieved a final championship position of 24th.

In 2008, Leason announced that he planned to join up with Rick Kerry and Team AFM Racing to race a pair of diesel fuelled BMW 120ds,[2] though the team missed the whole season.[3]

Leason did eventually race the diesel powered BMW 120d in the opening four rounds of the 2009 BTCC[4] but withdrew due to lack of budget.
