Morrow puts pedal to the metal in face of Storm Dennis

Solihull Editorial 19th Feb, 2020   0

FIGHTING spirit was provided in spades by Harrison Morrow in the second round of the Shenington Kart Club Championship last weekend.

The Solihull driver had to put pedal to the metal to combat the well-documented stormy conditions, a mentality which served him well on the track.

In Saturday’s practice, Harrison was able to complete five sessions in all with the help of his team Total Trouble Racing, and looked assured in his time spent on the asphalt.

With wet conditions greeting the drivers on race day, Morrow began his opening heat in ninth, but dropped back after a poor start.

The youngster regained his composure to climb back to ninth, but was unable to get the better of Jarrett Clark ahead of him at the finish.

In the final heat before the final, Harrison dropped to eighth from a starting position of third on the opening lap.

Thereafter, he was engaged in a race-long battle for fifth, but remained eighth at the chequered flag.

Placing in 17th for the A final, Morrow was confident of demonstrating good pace over the course of the full race, but suffered a set-back when slipping from 16th to 24th on lap two after spinning out.

Undeterred, Morrow recovered to rise through the rankings and finish a respectable 17th after a relentless chase on his rivals.

A return to the Whilton Mill Kart Club Championship for round two now awaits this weekend.
