Tickets and Tours CEO David McCullough said the company was proud to back Harris, who is a local racer.

“I have known Ryal for a long time, and have watched him become one of the best racers I have ever seen the V8 Utes. No matter what is thrown at him during a race, he has the ability to drive his way out of it. We are ecstatic to have the chance to help him achieve his goal of being the only driver to win three V8 Ute championships.”

McCullough, the company’s CEO, has been in the tourism industry for more than 10 years, and has spent the past three years researching how to make booking a holiday to the Gold Coast as easy as possible.

“Sponsoring a Local sportsman like Harris makes sense”, McCullough said “Supporting Harris, who is a local driver and who represents the Gold Coast so well, is important to us,” he said. “We want to support local athletes as well as local business which is why we have created the service to help tourists book everything from car hire, flights, accommodation and attractions prior to arriving on the Gold Coast so they can spend the quality time with their family in this beautiful location.
