Harry Tincknell is one of the most exciting racing talents to come out of the UK in recent years.
In 2019 Harry continues to compete in his third season in the FIA World Endurance Championship (2018/19 super season) in the Ford GT with Ford Chip Ganassi Racing, alongside his second year in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship with Mazda Team Joest. This year will once again allow Harry to compete for overall wins at some of the most prestigious sports car races in the world, including at the Rolex at Daytona 24 Hours and the 12 Hours of Sebring.
During a busy 2018, Harry worked with NIO Formula E Team as Rookie Test and Simulator Driver, as well as competed in parallel series in the North American IMSA series with Mazda Team Joest and the global stage of the World Endurance Championship with Ford Chip Ganassi Racing where Harry gained pole starts, set fastest laps and had multiple podiums.
2017 saw Devon-born Harry competing in his second season in the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) in the Ford GT with the Ford Chip Ganassi Racing team based in the UK. A highlight in the season included securing a second place finish in the GTE class at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in June, a hard-fought third place at the WEC season finale in Bahrain which culminated in Harry and teammate Andy Priaulx sealing third place overall in the WEC driver’s championship.
2016 was a vintage year for Tincknell as he won two races in the Ford GT’s debut WEC season, which secured second place in the team’s title race. The young British racer also took the driver’s title in the LMP2 class of the European Le Mans Series in with the Nissan-powered Jota Sport team.
Ambitious, fresh and undeniably talented, the 26-year old is a mature, confident sportsman, who is extremely passionate about his driving career.
Articulate and media-astute, Tincknell values his own 'brand' just as much as that of his sponsors and partners. He not only produces results on track but also is at ease in front of the camera, delivering brand messages through interviews, product placement, and other activities.
Tincknell is a dedicated racer, training to a strict fitness programme, and playing sport to remain mentally sharp and physically alert. He also understands the complexities of modern racing and race car engineering, to work successfully as part of a team and relay feedback productively to his engineers.
For a driver so young and with such a career ahead of him, Tincknell has an exceptional level of experience and knowledge.
