Welcome to Barton Racing

Barton Racing is a young, family business with ambitious plans for the future. Focused on a bright new talent in the world of classic motorsport, Harry Barton, the team, in partnership with Retro Engineering, has enjoyed a very successful first season. Six First in Class wins has exceeded expectation for year one of a strategic five year plan, promising further significant success.

As many of you know Retro-Speed Magazine (www.retro-speed.co.uk) has been promoting twenty year old Harry Barton and Barton Racing throughout this season in their bid to win the HSCC Historic Touring Car Championship, driving a 1966 BMW 1800 TiSA prepared by our friends at Retro Engineering. Well, the Championship comes to a head at Silverstone this weekend 15-16 October. Harry is very close to claiming victory. If, and it‘s a big if, he can pull off a pair of class wins in the last two twenty minute races, he has cracked it. Everybody is working flat out to make this happen. But luck, even the weather plays a part. One thing is for sure, 2022 has provided the youngster with a steep learning curve, with plenty of character building ups and downs. A Championship to his name following a first full season will provide the icing on the cake. Fingers crossed.

The Grid

1966 was a great year for England. As it turns out, it also wasn’t bad year for MG. Harry Barton’s first car was a beautifully restored MGB Roadster, with less than 400 miles on the clock. This was an absolutely stunning car, purchased from ADW Automotive and a chap called Adrian Wilson. The Barton family went on to buy a TR6, Triumph Spitfire and a 1959 MGA from Adrian, forming the basis of Harry’s induction into classic motoring.

The Circuit

Thanks to a lot of hard work and late nights from all at Retro Engineering, the TiSa has performed exceptionally well in all four meetings this season. Harry has taken full advantage and enjoyed considerable success in all races. Participation in both The Masters and HSCC next season will hopefully lead  to a couple of podium positions.

The Finish Line

The Barton family has put together an exciting five-year plan. The aim of this plan is to help Harry achieve his ambition, which is for people to respect him the way that they clearly respect Sam. When Carl asked Harry what he wanted to achieve in racing, he said that he could do worse than follow Sam’s path and ultimately get to race a DB4GT at Goodwood, joining the ranks of the BRDC, and perhaps race for a UK team in LMP/LMH class.

Sponsorship Opportunity

Whilst it’s still very early in Harry’s development, with a very promising first season and a busy schedule ahead, we are already thinking about sponsorship. With comments like;

“I’m tipping Mr. Barton as a future champion.”
Peter Baker. Retro-Speed Social Media

“His rate of progress is outrageous.”
Sam Hancock

“The best of the Touring cars was the BMW 1800Ti of young Harry Barton”

Perhaps we’re not too ahead of ourselves?!

We will certainly be looking for a headline sponsor for next season. It’s also not too late to get involved this season. If you’re interested in getting in early and having an initial exploratory conversation, do please get in touch.

If you’d simply like us to keep you posted on developments, just let us know.
