Morrow hopes to see out position after breaking into the top ten in Shenington

Solihull Editorial 17th Sep, 2019   0

HARRISON Morrow has advanced into the top ten in the Shenington Kart Club Championship, following an eventful penultimate round of action in Oxfordshire.

Starting his weekend with a solid showing in practice, producing his best times of the day in the final session, the Solihull racer was in good stead for action the following day.

In the opening heat, Morrow was fifth and riding well after the first lap, before coming undone after failing to find his true pace to finish in 19th.

It became clear after the first race that an issue with his brakes had led to the slump, though the new set-up in place for heat two failed to fix the problem after a finish of 22nd.

Switching back to the original braking system, the Total Trouble Racing driver pushed on to secure a place in the A final.

Despite dropping back into 24th place, he fought hard in the final six laps to make up six places and finish 18th after a determined drive.

In the final race of the day, Harrison was caught up in a multi-kart incident on a hairpin bend in the opening lap, leaving him chasing the rest of the pack once again.

Climbing to 28th out of the field of 34 drivers, Morrow eventually recorded a finish of 29th after time penalties – a respectable position given the circumstances.

Morrow banked 39 points over the weekend, pushing him ahead of Hayden Burling in the leaderboard.

He returns to action this weekend for round nine of the Whilton Mill Kart Club Championship, where he looks to improve on his current position of 20th.
