Weekend to forget for Morrow at Whilton Mill Kart Club Championship

Ben Tyler 24th Sep, 2019

SOLIHULL racer Harrison Morrow had a race day to forget in round nine of the Whilton Mill Kart Club Championship.

After suffering numerous disqualifications in the heats and the B final, Morrow was unable to build on Saturday’s promising practice sessions, with the racer and his team dealt a valuable lesson.

On Saturday, Morrow used a dry set-up with his kart and found consistent pace ready for competitive action the following day – even against a high level of competition.

He recorded a 16th-fastest finish, a position that could have been improved further albeit for yellow flags during his fastest lap.

Starting 13th in the opening heat, Morrow started steadily and found himself in 23rd, but was disqualified after exceeding track limits.

Harrison sought to make amends in heat two after consultation with his team, something which was partly achieved when recovering from a slow start to record consecutive personal best lap times and finishing in 16th.

That initial optimism was quickly dampened by a torrid third heat, in which intermediate tyres were used prior to intensive rain.

As a result, Morrow struggled to keep up the pace with the other competitors and was disqualified due to track limits to add insult to injury.

Lining up 20th out of a field of 21 drivers in the B final, Morrow made contact with another kart in the opening lap to earn a penalty, followed by some wild driving in an attempt to make up some places.

Progressing into tenth place, he was then disqualified once again for exceeding track limits along with several other competitors, ending a miserable day for Morrow and Total Trouble Racing.

Morrow currently sits 23rd in the Championship rankings with two rounds to go, but now has a week off before returning to action at the Shenington IKR Championship.
