Champion Interview by email: MotoMono - Jason Timms


Moto Mono's Jason Timms, from probably Mono's most prolific family of winners, talks about winning the smallest capacity but on occassions fastest class.

When did you start racing?

1989/90. I raced a Formula Renault as support with the Touring Cars and BARC in the 90's. I stopped racing in 2001 as my son began to compete in Motorcross events. Unfortunately he broke is leg in 2011 so I started racing again in my father's 1600cc Lola. I purchased a 2007 Speads Moto Mono for use at Spa and I haven't looked back since, it's great fun.

What previous success have you had?

I won the 1600 Kent Championship

Why did you decide to do Monoposto?

My father and uncle were members of the club and during a practice day I jumped into my father's car and got the racing bug!

What mods did you make to the car?

This year I have only changed the tyres

Dry sump the engine and better aero
