Harvey does the double as Hankey impresses

1 Mins read

Tim Harvey rounded off the perfect weekend as he did the double, taking top spot in both races. It wasn’t so easy for Harvey in the second race though as he was made to work harder for the win as newcomer Euan Hankey pushed hard.

“If that’s the pace that Euan has at this stage of the season, it’s going to be hard work,” admitted Harvey after battling with Hankey and Caine. “Euan was all over me and kept me honest,” said Harvey.

Hankey was happy with his weekend, “I was pushing my hardest,” he said, before admitting “I’m still learning”. It wasn’t just on-track problems he had to deal with as he suffered muscle pump-up in his right arm, forcing him to change gear with his left hand in the closing stages of the race.

Tom Bradshaw finished his solid weekend with a fourth place after fending off Glynn Geddie and Michael Meadows.”Our pace was not spot on in the dry, but that’s two solid results at my least favourite circuit,” said Bradshaw.

Another driver who doesn’t rate the Hampshire circuit was Glynn Geddie who claimed fitfh place ahead of Charles Bateman and Michael Meadows, who lost his front splitter later in the race.

The Pro-Am 1 category battle roared on as Ollie Jackson made up for the problems in race 1, battling Bateman for overall position. As Jackson put his all in to catching Bateman Joans Gelzinis closed in on him, followed closely by Ahmad Al-Harthy, as the chequered flag dropped the three cars were covered by less than a second. Gelzinis and his team Juta Racing came away from the weekend with the “Team of the weekend” award.

Mark Hazell completed the Pro-Am 2 double as Steve Parish, George Brewster and Glenn McMenamin closed in on him, leading a four-car train across the flag with just 1.7 seconds covering the four drivers. “It’s been good fun but very hard work” admitted Hazell.
