Tim Harvey has become the most successful driver in the eight-year history of the Porsche Carrera Cup GB following another dominate weekend which saw him take two convincing victories at Croft
Before the weekend Harvey was on equal victories with former champion Richard Westbrook with 31 wins each. Leading the field over the chequered flag in race 1 at Croft saw the 2008 champion take the record from Westbrook before going on to take his win tally to 33 in race 2.
“I’m not a great one for records and milestones” admits Harvey, “but in a championship I love as much as the Carrera Cup to have the most number of wins ever is fantastic, especially to take the record from Richard Westbrook,”
2010 has been a spectacular season for Harvey which has so far seen him take nine out of ten victories. He added “It’s just part of a dream season so far for me. It’s a nice achievement and it is special.”
Harvey who is now in his seventh full season of the championship and is more than happy to be a part of it. “This is my 28th consecutive season of racing,” said Harvey. “The Carrera Cup is the biggest and best national championship and it is great to be part of it.”
The Oxford driver is chasing his second PCCGB championship after winning it in 2008. Harvey previously finished in the runner up spot in 2004, 2006 and 2007 and has scored an impressive 97 podium finishes from 134 starts.
With half the season run Harvey lead the championship by 39 points going in to the mid-season break. Michael Caine will be looking to narrow the deficit when the Porsche’s return to track at Snetterton in August.
