Bassingham kart racer Jack Harvey has moved into second place of the prestigious British Racing Drivers Club Stars of Tomorrow Championship after a superb set of results this weekend (May 1/2).
The Allens Group backed youngster came through one of the toughest race weekends of his career to finish fourth in the final, at the Warden Law Motorsport Centre near Sunderland. By his own admission, the racing in the top line series is going to be some of the hardest in the country this season.
"The first heat was such a hard race," he said. "It really was like driving in an A-final race it was that competitive and close. The pace was so fast all weekend. I think it must have been the hardest meeting I've had so far," he added.
A handful of good results over the course of the two-day meeting put Harvey into second place in the standings, just 15 points behind the series leader. A first, third and seventh place in the heats, including fastest lap in one heat has shown that Jack and the Fusion Motorsport squad have the pace to run at the sharp end of the pack on a constant basis.
The Fusion team had more cause for celebration too, with racers from all three of the major categories picking up race wins over the weekend.
Jack will not have any time to relax and take in his recent run of results, with the next round of the other major championship he is contesting taking place next weekend.
Round three of the Motorsport Association (MSA) Super One Championship gets underway at Lydden Hill over the 8th and 9th of May. However, it will be a steep learning curve for the youngster though, as he has never raced at the circuit before.
"I'm really looking forward to next weekend," he said. "Everyone that I have spoken to about the track has told me that you have to ride the kerbs to get a quick time, so I'm going to go out and ride them hard from the first session and see how we get on." He added.
