Morrow frustrated after clashes overshadow Shenington race

Solihull Editorial 23rd Aug, 2019   0

A TOUGH weekend lay in wait for Harrison Morrow, as he took to the track for round eight of the Shenington Kart Racing Club Championship.

The Solihull racer has had to adjust to racing as a privateer team for Total Trouble Racing in recent weeks, and experienced another learning curve for his development at Shenington.

In Saturday’s damp practice session, Morrow and his team struggled to find a set-up to get the best pace out the Honda Cadet kart, something which was evident with a 22nd-place finish in heat one.

Harrison finished 22nd for a second time in heat two, this time after clashing with another kart on the first lap and having to chase the rest of the pack for the remainder of the race.

After another clash in lap one of the the third heat, Harrison this time fought back to finish 19th despite failing to find any real pace.

The youngster’s misery was compounded in the final when getting caught in a clash with another driver to run wide of the track, finishing 24th in another disappointing race.

Morrow and his team, despite the frustrations of the weekend, accepted that they lack the same experience as the other privateer teams competing alongside them.

They target round eight of the Whilton Mill Kart Club Championship as the ideal time to bounce back this weekend, with two test days in the lead up to the event booked in order to work on the issues that hindered them last time out on the track.
