2019 EUROPEAN RALLY CHAMPION
TO THE TOP
Chris Ingram is 26, and the first British Rally Driver in 52 years to become FIA European Rally Champion. Born and raised in Manchester, Chris is driven towards one goal – to become FIA World Champion.
From working class roots, and the first in his family blood line to forge a career in Rally Driving, Chris is relentless, strong, passionate and hungrier than ever to achieve his dreams. In 2019, alongside his co-driver Ross Whittock, and despite a very limited budget, Chris and Ross became FIA European Rally champions.
For Chris, this reinforced his unshakeable belief that he can become a title contender for the World Rally Championship in the future and the European title was just the beginning of the story. Chris is more motivated and determined than ever to move up to ‘the big league’ and battle with the world’s best teams and drivers to achieve his dreams in the World Rally Championship.
Chris has 1 goal, to become the World Rally Champion.
PROMISING START IN WRC3 DEBUT
Chris Ingram’s much anticipated debut in the World Rally Championships (WRC) got off to a
promising start at the Croatia Rally 2021, finishing in 5 th position in a hugely competitive
WRC3 field. Partnered with co-driver Ross Whittock, the race was their first since winning
the 2019 European Championships, driving their new SXM Competition prepared Skoda
Fabia as part of their team Rally Warrior.
Chris Ingram said: “Being back after one and half years out of rallying, has been a difficult
jump at this incredibly high level, but I’m happy to take the tough lessons and to have
finished the rally.
‘Rally Croatia was by far the toughest rally and circumstances I’ve ever experienced. A few
years ago we were fighting at the top of every rally so it’s been very hard to accept it’s going
to take some more time and practice to get back to that level and beyond.”
INGRAM INTRODUCES HIS WRC PARTNERS
Chris Ingram’s FIA World Rally Championship adventure starts today, thanks to a key partnership with CarFinance 247 and a series of new sponsorships. Following Chris and co-driver Ross Whittock’s success in the European Rally Championship where they became the youngest ever champions, the pair will begin their first World Rally Championship challenge on the Croatia Rally from April 22-25. Having previously struggled financially and even running a successful Crowdfunding campaign, his WRC mission is set to be very different. His growing success has attracted significant attention from sponsors and enabled him to create the Rally Warrior team. With SG Financial and Fladgate acting as advisors, a number of new sponsors have been signed, backing his world title ambition.
Adam Shore, Director of Rally Warrior said, “Chris has battled for several years to finance his career. We felt the desire to step in and make sure Chris and Ross are given the chance at WRC which they deserve. They exemplify resilience and outstanding performance, and fans really want to see these rising stars compete.”
INGRAM EARNS WRC CHANCE
Chris Ingram will follow in the wheel tracks of his rallying heroes Richard Burns and Colin McRae when he embarks on an FIA World Rally Championship adventure for the first time.
The 26-year-old from Manchester in the United Kingdom won the FIA European Rally Championship in 2019, the first Briton to do so since motorsport all-rounder Vic Elford claimed the coveted title 52 years previously.
He has joined forces with the vastly successful SXM Competition team from Belgium to pilot a Škoda Fabia Rally2 Evo. Fellow Briton Ross Whittock, 29, will co-drive. Whittock was previously awarded the Michael ‘Beef’ Park Trophy for the highest ranked British co-driver under 25 on Wales Rally GB. He also won the European title with Chris.
Chris is very active on social media and over recent years has a large, growing, passionate and faithful fan-base. These numbers will grow exponentially from the moment he enters the World Rally Championship.
Chris takes his role of brand ambassador very seriously, and his sponsors and partners will receive a wide range of benefits including regular media and social media promotion, branding and highly visible logo placement, corporate, social and environmental responsibility, as well as VIP behind the scenes access to Chris and the team, and Chris’s personal attendance (subject to racing schedule) at corporate team building and social events.
Join Chris in his quest towards the ultimate title. Together with his co-driver Ross Whittock, the Rally Warrior Team, and your support we can make history together.
