Neal had limited experience before he started in the BSCC, mainly in club events while working as a mechanic and engineer.
Neal joined the Equipe Arden team in 1965, racing at half of the season's races. Neal's debut came at Oulton Park, claiming points in the main Mini Cooper battle. Neal claimed a podium at the final race of the season, although these were his only points finishes.
Equipe Arden also gave Neal half season drives in 1966 and 1967, with Neal claiming his first win in the BSCC. After a race long battle with John Rhodes in the Coopers, Neal claimed victory at Silverstone in Class B. Neal left Arden at the end of the season, joining Rhodes at the Cooper Car Co. team.With factory backing, Neal demonstrated his speed, claiming a second (and final) victory in his career at Crystal Palace. Neal was constantly battling at the top of Class B, frequently on the podium, and could have beat Rhodes, but for two retirements at the end of the year. Neal stayed with Cooper after they lost factory backing, joining up with Downton Engineering and Britax to form Britax-Cooper-Downton. He partnered Gordon Spice for the year, ultimately missing a race to help Spice in his outside chance of winning the class title. Neal was in constant battle with the BL MC cars (which were now the factory backed cars), leaving Spice to battle with the Broadspeed cars. By the end of the season, Neal had managed to beat the BL cars, but decided to leave the championship.
Neal would return, however, in 1992, as he founded Team Dynamics and began entering a car for his son Matt. He continues to run the team, helping run two cars for Matt and Gordon Shedden at Team Dynamics, with the team having won numerous titles.
