Born and raised in Manchester, Chris is driven towards one goal – to become FIA World Champion. From working class roots, and the first in his family to forge a career in Rally Driving, Chris is relentless, strong, passionate and hungrier than ever to achieve his dreams. In 2019, despite a very limited budget and supported by a crowdfunding campaign supported by 500 contributors, Chris defied the odds to become FIA European Rally Champion. For Chris, this reinforced his unshakeable belief that he can become a title contender for the World Rally Championship in the future and the European title was just the beginning of the story. Chris is more motivated and determined than ever to move up to ‘the big league’ and battle with the world’s best teams and drivers to achieve his dreams in the World Rally Championship, widely renowned as the toughest racing championship on the planet.
In addition to competing at Motorsport’s highest level in the World Rally Championship, Chris Ingram is a vehicle manufacturer test driver, driver coach and ambassador to his commercial partners.
Chris Ingram has a social media following of over 100,000 people across the globe and has a loyal and growing fan-base. He is an ambassador for the Maverick Stars Trust Sports Charity and is also a fundraising ambassador for the HUMEN Men’s Mental Health Charity.
