Harry Tincknell


Biography


Considering the fact that Harry Tincknell only made the switch from single-seaters to sports cars in 2014 it can be surprising to hear that he is already a Le Mans winner.  For those who have seen him race - especially those who have raced against him - it is no surprise at all.  Harry's LMP2 class win at Le Mans in 2014 sealed his reputation as a fast and mistake-free driver. 

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.

2017 saw Tincknell take two more WEC victories and the runner up spot at Le Mans. In 2018, he plans to go one better!
