James Hall started his motorsport career at the age of 9 when he spent two seasons in karting where he gained valuable experience. He then made the decision to move on to cars. Driving a Mini Production Saloon on Oval Circuits he quickly became a proficient and successful driver and racer, winning 2 championships in his first season.
The question was what comes next. Racing opportunities for under 17's are extremely limited and continuing Mini racing for 5 years would not offer progressive experience and improvement. The Yaris was built by Hall Motorsport for 13 year old James to compete in the 2015 British Junior Rally Championship when he turns 14 seemed to be the greatest opportunity he had to chase his dream.
Hall Motorsport is the culmination of 3 generations of involvement in motorsport covering autotests, autocross, circuit racing, karting and competing and servicing on stage rallies including international rallies. They are based at the Family Garage in Sandford on Thames (TJ Hall & Son) where James helps prepare the car to compete in.
