Harris to continue British GP2 development in 2020

| | BSB Support

Legendary chassis builders Harris will continue to develop its British GP2 programme in 2020 with Jack Scott’s JJ Racing team.

This season was a development year for both the chassis and the team but together, they will contest all rounds of the 2020 series - and the kit will be available to customers too.

“Having completed the development phase of their GP2 chassis, we’re now building a stock of customer frame kits and rolling chassis for 2020,” said Harris’ Stephen Bayford.

“The frame kit has been designed to accept donor forks, wheels, brakes and electrics, the rolling chassis can be built to Harris specification or using parts of customer choice, the current chassis has been designed and developed using Yamaha R6 engine.”

The chassis are identical to the final version of the 2019 development chassis, T45 aircraft specification tubular trellis type frame incorporating CNC machined aluminium structural components, the swingarm is all aluminium, a combination of CNC machined aluminium parts and aluminium sheet fabrication.

“The chassis has been designed and built to facilitate full adjustability, light enough to be competitive but strong enough to be rebuilt in the event of an episode. The temporary bodywork used in the development programme will be replaced for 2020 with new aerodynamic Moto2 derivatives developed specifically for us,” added Bayford.
