Our family " Team Horne " has been building their own Race Trucks and competing in the British, French and European Truck Racing Championships since 1986.
Over that time they have achieved some impressive results with Steve becoming a Double British Champion in both UK categories in 1998 and 1999 followed by podium finishes in the following consecutive seasons year after year. He has had race wins and strong places throughout Europe which has placed him firmly in the directory of accomplished race drivers. The team is based in the heart of Oxfordshire within the UK's Motor Sport valley which leads the world in innovation and technology with easy access to suppliers and test tracks.
Recently Ben Horne has taken over lead race driver seat while Steve concentrates on a more testing and development role and runs the team in the background. Ben was 3 when he first watched his dad race at Silverstone and now after all these years Steve stands and watches Ben battle it out on the track. Ben finished 7th in the highly competitive division 1 class in 2014 in our Gold MAN No.25 after many incidents throughout the year which continue to contribute to his learning curve on the way to the top step of the podium. Maybe this year could be the year or it may even take a little longer. we will see.
Steve may return to competitive racing later in 2015 to join Ben on the circuit in a new project he is trying to get off the ground.
