Harvey Settles For Fourth in Stars of Tomorrow as New Challenge Beckons
Bassingham kart racer Jack Harvey came through a tough final round of the BRDC Stars of Tomorrow Championship at Buckmore Park to claim fourth in the series.
The Allens Group backed youngster went into the weekend with a chance to lift the title at his first full attempt. A win in the first heat meant his weekend got off to a great start. However, a shunt off the track by another kart in the second heat dropped Jack to dead last in heat two. A fantastic drive allowed him to climb back up the order to 15th before the chequered flag.
Things went from bad to worse for Jack in the third heat when he and a handful of other karts were pushed off by another racer. A stunning drive from 28th place gave him 10th at the flag and a top ten starting position for the final.
A fifth place finish in the final gave Jack enough points to claim fourth overall in the final points table. Although disappointed not to finish the season in the top three, Jack is looking forward to the rest of 2004 and the chance to start testing a Mini Max class kart, in readiness for next year.
"I'm a bit disappointed not to have ended the year in the top three as we've been competitive all season," said Jack. "We have definitely had the pace to win races throughout the season, but unfortunately we haven't had the luck compared to some of the other guys out there," he added.
"It's the last race weekend in a Cadet Class kart for me though, I'll be testing the Mini Max chassis for the rest of the season and we've also been looking at the JICA class in Europe for next year. Nothing has been decided yet, though. We will have a good few weeks of serious testing and then make a decision when we know more details about next season," he added.
