I served my apprenticeship like most professional racing drivers in Karting for six years of which I went on to become British Karting Champion. I also finished 3rd in both the World and European championships.
I followed the natural path to single seat racing and joined Falcon Motorsport to compete in the MSA British Formula Ford Championship. I finished 2nd in the main championship and became the 2013 Scholarship champion.
Staying with Falcon Motorsport I returned to the British MSA Formula Ford Championship taking 27 podiums from 30 races and became British Vice Champion. Despite my consistency I lost out on the overall champion win by 6 points.
To end the year I was nominated as one of the six finalists of the BRDC McLaren Autosport Young Driver Award which lead me on to test in a variety of high performance cars which included the McLaren P1, Mercedes German Touring Car and also an F2 single seat race car. This was a great achievement and the experience will be unforgettable.
Harrison Signs with AV Formula for 2015 Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 Assault:
This year Harrison joins AVF, the Barcelona based team that has successfully competed in the World Series by Renault 3.5 and NEC events under the leadership of ex-racing driver Adrián Vallés Escortell. Joining Harrison for the team’s full-time return to the Eurocup is Spanish driver, Iñigo Bikuña, who contested the 2014 NEC season with the team.
“After testing with AV Formula back in November I am delighted to announce my move to Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 this year with Adrián. We first met when I raced for him at a karting event in Spain three years ago and we’ve kept in contact ever since.
“I’m very much looking forward to racing a whole season with the team and to making the step up to a more powerful car. I have been training hard over the winter and am ready to take up the challenge of competing in a World Series by Renault Championship and to experiencing the European circuits in a highly competitive field. I would also like to thank my manager Peter Fenichel at VCM Motorsport for his continued support.”
Adrián Vallés, Team Principal, AV Formula:
“I am delighted that Harrison Scott has joined us for the 2015 Eurocup championship.

From his results in British Formula Ford he has shown that he is ready for the move in to European racing and, with our experience of World Series by Renault events at AVF, I am pleased to welcome Harrison in to our highly experienced family.”
I competed another season in Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0. This being my second year in the championship, I felt really confident going into the first race and was a real contender from the start. I had 3 race wins and 9 podiums throughout the year, and I finished in 4th place in the championship.
I have signed for RP Motorsport to compete in the Euro Formula Open F3 championship. Please see my latest news page for up to date news of my races.
