David Harrison

Rallying goes back one step further in David's family; His father, Brian was a regular competitor in the 70's and 80's starting off as a driver then finishing as a co-driver which took him around the UK and to Ireland. Including co-driving for the works Honda team on the Manx International Rally (or Trophy Rally as it was then known as).

David has always had a passion for rallying and followed in his footsteps starting out at the beginning of 2005 at the age of 18, after a brief spell in Kart racing during his school years. His first event was the CCS Stages held on the closed roads of the Isle of Man. The very same year would also see him take his first Championship win, winning class 'A' for up to 1400cc cars. 2006 Started off as another promising year, finishing 3rd in class on the season opener, then taking a dominant class victory by over 3 minutes and finishing 8th overall on the gravel stages of the Kingsmead Finance Rally. But after a no-score on the following two rounds due to mechanical problems the championship was lost.

He also contested and won the British Rally Championship's support series, the BRC Challenge (formerly the Stars) in a Jam Motorsport prepared and run Peugeot 106 S1400.

Simon Taylor

Simon Taylor has been a fan of rallying from a young age, spectating on the Lombard RAC and Network Q Rallies as soon as he was old enough to drive himself there. He has been a co-driver since 2003. His first multi-venue event was straight in at the deep end on the Pirelli Rally in 2003, in a treacherously dark and foggy Keilder Forest with Andrew Apperley in a N4 Subaru Impreza. They were 2nd in class in 2003 and came 2nd in the Prodrive cup in 2004. In 2005 Simon partnered 1990 BTRDA British Rallycross Champion Richard Sykes in the Peugeot 206 Cup. They had what Simon calls an "unlucky" year and finished only a handful of events.

Simon is based in Tadcaster and travelled to contest the 2006 BTRDA and 2007 BRC Stars Championships alongside Richard Sykes, continuing with him for 2008 when they took four wins but missed the title after transmission problems plagued the Fiesta. They moved to the full British Rally Championships Swift Sport Cup in 2009 and set some cracking times, but reliability problems meant they finished third despite a win in Ulster. They move to the Citroen Racing Trophy in 2010, returning to the full BRC events for an assault on the French one-make series.
