2008 Porsche Carrera Cup Great Britain Champion Tim Harvey has announced his plans to mount a title challenge for the 2010 season, driving with Red Line Racing.
Harvey was narrowly beaten to the 2009 title by Tim Bridgman and James Sutton in a close fought championship that went right down to the last race, but this year has confirmed his ambitions,”I’m as enthusiastic, competitive and excited as I’ve ever been; I can’t wait,” said Harvey. “This is my 28th consecutive season of racing and that’s fairly unusual, particularly at this level. The Carrera Cup is the biggest and best national championship and it is great to be part of it.”
“I was like a kid with a new toy when I was running in my new car at Snetterton last week,” he said. “I was still as keen to get up at 5am and drive to Snetterton as I was when I went to Brands Hatch to test my Formula Ford in 1983.”
“Last year was a fantastic year and we went into the final race with a chance of the title,” he said. “If I’m in contention again this year, that is all I can ask for. I really enjoy racing against the new crop of young drivers and I know I can still improve. I’m confident that the team will give me a car to challenge for the title and then it’s down to what happens on the day.”
Alongside his racing plans Harvey is the Director of the British Racing Drivers’ Club (BRDC) SuperStars program, which is designed to support the most promising young British drivers giving them help to move up the ranks.
