Harry Tincknell (born 29 October 1991 in Exeter, Devon, UK) is a British racing driver, who served as a test and development driver for Jaguar Racing in the ABB FIA Formula E Championship in 2016/17 and 2018/19.[1] A former tester for the NIO Formula E Team too, Tincknell was one of four drivers evaluated by Jaguar ahead of their debut season in 2016/17, but would miss out to Mitch Evans and Adam Carroll.[2]

Background

Tincknell began his career in karting in 2001, completing eight competitive seasons before graduating to single-seaters in 2008, taking part in the Formula Renault UK Winter Series.[3] 2009 saw Tincknell compete in FR UK for the full campaign, finishing fifth, a feat he would repeat in 2010, despite claiming two wins in the latter season.[3] In 2011 Tincknell would move up onto the next level of the single-seater ladder, joining the British Formula 3 Championship.[3]

European Exchanges: 2012 - 2017

Tincknell would end his debut campaign in British F3 in eleventh with one victory, a result which saw him secure a second season in 2012, and a few appearances in the FIA Formula 3 European Championship.[3] Tincknell improved to fifth in British F3, made eight appearances in European F3 and made his debut at the Macau Grand Prix, which saw him move into Euro F3 full time for 2013.[3] That season saw Tincknell claim one victory and finish fifth, although come the end of the season the British racer would opt to call time on his single-seater career.[3]

For 2014 Tincknell jumped across to sportscars, entering the European Le Mans Series as well as two rounds of the World Endurance Championship.[3] Competing in the LMP2 class, Tincknell would finished second in the ELMS, while also claiming a class victory on his debut at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.[3] A repeat campaign followed in 2015, with Tincknell finishing third in the ELMS, while also taking part in an ill-fated run with Nissan in the LMP1 class at Le Mans.[3]

World Wanderer: 2016 - 2021

Tincknell completed a third full season in the ELMS in 2016, winning the series and the LMP2 class, while also signing up to Ford's LMGTE programme in the WEC.[3] In three seasons with Ford Tincknell would claim two class victories, before moving to the Mazda programme in the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship in the US in 2019.[3] Two wins in his first campaign with Mazda would earn Tincknell a second campaign in 2020, with the Brit going on to finish third in the championship, while also claiming second in the Asian Le Mans Series with Thunderhead Carlin.[3]

Formula E History

Tincknell was one of four drivers approached by Jaguar Racing to test their new I-Type I powertrain, which was to debut at the start of the 2016/17 FIA Formula E Championship.[2] The Brit would complete one day in the second set of I-Type Is at the 2016 Donington Test, but was overlooked for a race seat for Jaguar's first FE campaign.[2] The Brit would, however, be retained as a test and development driver, before leaving the squad at the end of the season.[2]

Rookie Runouts

For 2017/18 Tincknell would secure a new role with the NIO Formula E Team, the Anglo-Chinese squad signing the Brit up to be a Simulation Development driver.[4] That led to Tincknell taking part in the 2018 Rookie Test in Marrakesh, where the British racer would focus on race pace alongside Alexandre Imperatori.[4] However, come the end of the season Tincknell was no closer to a race seat, and hence would leave NIO at the end of the season.

2018/19 saw Tincknell return to Jaguar as a test/development driver, which saw him again compete in the Rookie Test mid-season.[1] Outpaced by Pietro Fittipaldi during the test, Tincknell would continue on in his role as Jaguar's main test/development driver until the end of the season.
