Harry ended his karting season by finishing fifth in the Honda Cadet Championship, as a rookie. Harry also raced a couple of times in the IAME class, and he impressed onlookers by finishing second in the Grand Prix at PFI.
On race weekends in the 2015 FKS, Harry will have his kart operated by multi-title winning team Fusion Motorsport. Fusion and their engineers have a wealth of experience and skills in tuning and preparing vehicles to be at their very best in races.
Daniel Hazlewood, Team Principal at Fusion Motorsport was very excited at the prospect of working with Harry in 2015, as he said, “We are delighted to have Harry join us as part of our 2015 FKS line up. Having monitored his progress through the 2014 season in the Honda category, he is an undoubted talent who we expect to be an instant front runner in the Championship.
Daniel continued, “The support from Ellis Cowes has been a major factor in allowing Harry to compete with us, so we are obviously grateful to them, as I'm sure Harry and his family are."
On the announcement that he will be supported by Ellis Clowes, Harry said, “I just want to really thank Ellis Clowes for their support as I enter the 2015 FKS Super Cadet Class. I hope that with their backing, I will have a great first season in FKS and will get some race wins.”
