Ryal “The Kid” Harris driving the PWR cooled Ford Falcon ute has been crowned the winner of the 2012 Auto One V8 Ute Racing Series at the final round held at the road circuit at Olympic Park Sydney.

Harris has been in the Series since 2004, almost won in 2005 and again last year. This year he put together a superb sea-son to take the series win. The Gold Coaster will also walk away with a Ford Performance Racing test in a V8 Supercar.

At the start of the day on the final race meeting, there were three drivers in the running for the title however it was Harris who drove consistently and issue free over the 3 race final meeting to secure the championship by 12 points.
