Morrow seeks positive finish at Shenington

Ben Tyler 1st Nov, 2019

SOLIHULL’S Harrison Morrow goes into the final round of the Shenington IKR Series this weekend determined to make amends for a troubled weekend at the tenth race of the Whilton Mill Kart Club Championship.

Racing in wet conditions during Saturday’s practice session, a number of minor issues threatened Morrow’s preparations, but dry weather on race day at least helped to compensate.

Despite this, Harrison slumped to a finish of 18th in the opening heat from eighth on the grid after a commendable start.

He then recovered from a bad start in heat two to finish 24th on slick tyres, but still struggled to find his outright race pace.

In heat three, Morrow suffered trouble when hitting another kart and incurring a nosecone penalty at the start of the race, then, in a desperate attempt to make up for his troubles, received two five-second time penalties to finish 28th.

The team were left frustrated with how the afternoon had unfolded and went into the final race hopeful of ending on a high note.

Unfortunately for Morrow, an off-track incident on the third corner pushed the Solihull karter back into 30th, before later suffering another nosecone penalty.

He did make up some places to finish 27th, a result which keeps him 22nd in the overall rankings.
