Experience the key for Morrow

Solihull Editorial 31st Aug, 2019   0

A TENTH-PLACED finish provided Solihull racer Harrison Morrow and his team with plenty more experience in the eighth round of the Whilton Mill Kart Club Championship.

Morrow enjoyed a packed schedule in the lead up to the round, going through two test days on the Daventry track before Saturday’s practice to work on his technique, setting new personal best lap times in the process.

A strong showing in the first practice session of the weekend provided Morrow with plenty of encouragement ahead of race day on Sunday.

In the opening heat in a field of 45 drivers, he finished 24th.

The second heat was heavily disrupted by incidents involved other drivers, meaning the Total Trouble Racing driver was unable to build any momentum after three re-runs, and he crossed the line in 26th.

Heat three also proved an underwhelming one, after Morrow was sent wide to avoid clashing with a spinning kart to lose ground which he did not recover, resulting in 32nd place.

Going into the B final, Morrow was involved in a five-kart battle and raced across the line in tenth, to at least end his weekend on a positive note.

Morrow was naturally disappointed with the end result, but gains further understanding of competing against more experienced and better backed teams on the track, now turning his attentions to the sixth round of the Shenington IKR Championship this weekend.
