Simon Dolan


Simon Dolan is a prominent British businessman and owns a number of different companies across a wide range of sectors, including accountancy, employment services, publishing and aviation.

Forever a lover of great motor cars, Simon initially discovered motorsport first-hand when his wife purchased him a private coaching day at Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground with professional racing driver Sam Hancock in 2007. This was Simons first ever track experience, after which he embarked on an intensive driver training programme with Sam, with the ultimate goal of racing at Le Mans.



A qualified materials engineer, former professional racing driver and veteran of Le Mans both as a driver, team owner and team manager for multiple high profile privateer and works outfits, Sam now focuses his attentions on running the Jota Sport racing team and overall development of the Jota group of companies.

Sam founded Jota in its original guise of Team Jota in 2000 and has been navigating its impressive development and growth since. Sam is a well-established figure in motorsport paddocks and as such also advises several major automotive manufacturers on their motorsport programmes.
