Ray Harris, Mercedes SLK driver in Quaife Intermarque Championship, class HR, age 29.

BARC SEC: Ok green flags – lets go: how did your adventure with motorsport get started?
Ray Harris: My Dad was racing before I was even born so I was always around the tracks, and making my toy cars into bangers in the garage with his hammer (some of them would probably be worth a lot of money now). I finally managed to get him to buy me a ministox at the age of 13. I've raced pretty much since.

BS: You're behind the wheel of your Mercedes SLK. What is your dream racing car?
R.H.: Nascar or an Australian V8 supercar.

BS: What is your dream motorsport event you want to take part in?
R.H.: Daytona for the speed and the atmosphere or Bathurst for the party.

BS: Hard braking now – are there any other sport disciplines you're familiar with?
R.H.: I used to play a bit of football, but don't really have the fitness or the time for it anymore.

BS: Racing is on weekends – what are you doing weekdays?
R.H.: I actually work weekend shifts for an F1 team at the moment, so I have to take holiday to go racing. I seem to spend a fair bit of my midweek time messing around with my car in the workshop.

BS: Who are your motorsport and non-motorsport heroes?
R.H.: I don't really have any heroes, but I respect anybody who can be competitive on a tight budget.

BS: What are your expectations for 2013?
R.H.: Well at the start of the season I said it was important to finish every race. So far I have had the throttle stick at Brands and a rather large "off" at Cadwell, so that hasn't really gone to plan. Now I'm just hoping to be able to finish the season as I'm rapidly running out of money.

BS: Very tricky corner now – imagine there are no cars in the world, what would you do?
R.H.: I'm quite into motorbikes, haven't had one for a while now though.

BS: And finish line – it's time for a drink. What's your favorite one?
R.H.: Vodka and Redbull is always a winner. I used to work at Redbull, so kind of got the taste for it. Expensive now I have to buy it though.

BS: Thanks and good luck.
R.H.: Thanks. And if anybody wants to sponsor the most recognizable car on the track, you know where I am.
