TOM HARRIS 84

 

Based in Banbury, Oxfordshire, Tom Harris has firmly established himself as one of the leading lights in stock car racing. After making the early switch from a fledgling motocross career to short circuit racing, Tom has proven to be one of the fastest drivers in the category. Beginning in Ministox, Tom quickly switched to BriSCA F1 stock cars and began to build and prepare race winning short circuit race cars.

Since switching to F1 stock cars in 2010, Tom has won nearly every championship possible in cars he has designed, constructed, prepared and raced. After securing titles in the UK and Holland, including the ultimate accolade of winning the World Final, Tom is now making the transition and is also racing against the world’s best short oval racers in the US. 2015 saw Tom make his debut in the Chili Bowl Midget event, the Super Bowl equivalent of Midget racing and beat Indy Car and NASCAR legends. Look out for further outings in 2015 with details on the news page. In 2018 after a successful 16th place overall in the Chilli Bowl Nationals Tom has made quite an impression stateside and plans to be racing as much as he can both sides of the pond this year . Tom will be racing both in the midgets and the 410 Winged Sprint Cars!!
