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. with very much mixed bag of poor but expensive radio equipment and overall very poor communication results. Endurance events are race events where reliability and precision of good Radio Communications makes the difference between winning and losing, poor preforming equipment was stupid and unacceptable. We formed Harris Race Radios in 2002.
Rex is a Qualified Radio Telecommunications Engineer, Approved Radio Certifier, and Engineer had access to all of the world’s latest technology and the knowledge to know how to use it. We formed Harris Race Radios, and made rapid progress in improving quality, reliability, clarity, etc. at reasonable prices. Harris Race Radios™ have worked with world leading Radio Suppliers to develop special firmware to mitigate the effects of high speeds, Doppler and picket fence effects, high noise, high EMF interference, peculiar to modern motorsport communication; we use these firmware systems exclusively on all of our radios.
Harris Race Radios™ in conjunction with Motorsport New Zealand set up Race Radio™ this is a system where race control officials can communicate directly with Race Teams.
Harris Race Radios™ as Approved by Radio Spectrum Management Radio Certifiers (ARC) and Engineers (ARE) are able to craft NZ and Australian Radio Licenses, and keeping of a data base of radio frequencies used for motorsport. Harris Race Radios™ has greatly simplified the gaining of the correct radio licenses. This has resulted in a huge reduction in cross channel interference and overall quality improvement.

- 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 and Stilo Helmets.
