Harris Race Radios are your #1 Radios for Racing Cars
Harris Race Radios ™ was created out of frustration being unable to purchase or rent good quality Motorsport Radio Communications equipment at reasonable prices. This was very frustrating. Aaron Harris was racing in Endurance motorsport events around the world, Bathurst, Dubai, Barcelona, etc. During this time, he used a very much mixed bag of poor but expensive radio equipment and resulting in poor communication results. Endurance events are race events where reliability and precision of good radio communications makes the difference between winning and losing. Rex Harris and Aaron Harris wanted to improve this for racers, we formed Harris Race Radios in 2002.
It quickly became apparent that the new Motorola Motorsport Digital radio equipment was showing up the deficiencies in all of the other associated equipment. Harris Race Radios™ developed new Wiring looms, Aerials, Helmet kits, Cabling, Earpieces, PTT. Even the Radio Box, that holds the radio in the car, was redeveloped improving the performance.
We are always improving, getting better.
- As the speeds of the cars got even higher. The likes of TRS and GT cars, the Motorsport Communications required even higher standards. Showing up the short comings of the standard helmet kits and wiring harnesses. Harris Race Radios™ created the “Professional series” of equipment developed by Harris Race Radios™ in conjunction with our suppliers to solve this. Again Professional equipment at reasonable prices.
- Helmet compatibility with radio systems. It became evident to Harris Race Radios™ that some systems worked better than others. The difference was the type of helmet being used. Helmets can badly distort the sound waves going to the microphone. Others don’t allow the mic to be placed correctly in the Racing Helmet. Harris Race Radios™ started selling Helmets that are compatible with Radio systems. Roux Helmets USA, Stilo Helmets and Schuberth.
Rex Harris is a Qualified Radio Telecommunications Engineer, Approved Radio Certifier, and Engineer with access to all of the world’s latest technology and the knowledge to know how to use it.
