LOUIS Harvey fought back from last place to finish sixth at the Shenington Winter Series.

Last weekend (February 16-17) saw round Two of the Series with Harvey keen to hold on to his second place spot in the championship.

With a full grid of 34 drivers and the Malmesbury karter fought well against a number of setbacks to climb his way up to sixth.

Harvey was fastest on track on Saturday during testing and the confidence was evident in his driving style.

Heat One on Sunday morning, he started from 11th on the grid.

This heat set the tone for the day as Harvey was hit off the track on the first lap and by the time he had recovered his kart back on track he was almost a lap down.

Undeterred he got his head down and chased the pack, managing to finish 31st.

Heat two saw Harvey start from 18th and he pulled off a fantastic drive through the battling drivers to finish third and gained some much needed points for the final grids.

With low points from heat One Harvey had to start mid pack in 16th for the final so just needed a clean start to set his challenge for the front.

This was not to be as entering the first corner Harvey was forced wide and off track as other drivers came together.

Losing time in the gravel run off he re-joined the race in last place.

With a 12 minute final he had time to still make a difference and was soon cutting his way through the field with pass after pass each lap.

Harvey eventually finished sixth making up 28 places and managed to secure enough points to remain second in the championship.

With only six points separating the top three drivers the final round will be great to watch. Fellow team mate Ben Watson also driving a Klaassen Motorsport ARC Chassis took the win and maintains the championship lead.

Making it three race meetings on the bounce that Klaassen Motorsport have topped the podium.

“The confidence in his driving, knowing he was quick on this track shone through all weekend” said his dad Chris

Harvey will be testing the new ROK engine this weekend at Fullbeck kart track on Saturday and racing his TKM on Sunday before his first race in his local Rissington Kart Club Championship which kicks off the first weekend in March.
