toutes directions racing team

Tom Harrison

Tom, the eldest of the two brothers at 30 works for his father at Toutes Directions Ltd. He is a Class 1 HGV driver. Tom has been enthusiastic about bikes from the age of three. Racing is in Tom’s blood. He began competing in Motocross races at the age of six. His natural ‘man and machine as one’ ability saw Tom taking up Stunt Biking as a hobby and earned him the nickname ‘Stunt Monkey’.

Tom supported Oliver when he was racing and decided to become involved himself. This year sees his first year on the circuit riding a Honda CB500 in the Thundersport GB Bridgestone 500 series. Tom, not surprisingly, did really well and is consistently improving in each race. Tom, once again excelling, found himself in the top ten in a surprisingly brief period of time.

Oliver Harrison

Oliver races a Yamaha R6 in the Thundersport Series sponsored by Toutes Directions. This is televised on Sky Eurosport, ‘Motors TV’ available on Sky, Virgin, Freeview and online. Oliver is 27years old and works at his fathers business Toutes Directions Specialist Transport as a mechanic and driver. He started racing motorbikes at the age of 14, his first competition bike was a KTM SX125 MotoX. This took him to California, USA where he was fortunate to meet one of his biking heroes Travis Pastrana! He graduated from MotoX to circuit racing, enjoying the thrill of a more challenging and technical competition. His circuit racing career began on a Honda RS125GP in the ACU Stars and New Era Series. This proved to be Oliver’s particular skill and he achieved success in the majority of his races. Encouraged and fully supported by his mentor and mechanic Dave Ibbottson who throughout his racing career has brought Oliver on from strength to strength.

His success at circuit racing was rewarded by a new Yamaha TZ250GP bike, whilst this machine was extremely competitive it was unpredictable and did not suit Oliver’s racing style. Last year he decided to race a Yamaha R6 Superstock. He fought against his initial passion for two stroke engines which he acknowledged can be unreliable at times and he hasn’t looked back! He entered three meetings last year to assess how bike and rider were compatible. The whole team were amazed at his renewed competitive and stylish riding ability, Oliver had found his niche. He came away with a winning trophy at Cadwell Park after being placed at the back of the grid. Oliver came 3rd in the first race and went on to achieve 1st place in the second! At Donington Park, as a ‘mid-season entrant’, Oliver was placed at 14th position and after a fantastic, hard-run and exciting race finished 4th!
