|Lincolnshire based karting champion Jack Harvey heads out to the Italian circuit of La Conca next weekend for what will be possibly the biggest challenge of his career, the KF2 World Cup.|
The Alpinestars backed racer is brimming with confidence as he goes out to a track where he has had a great deal of success in the past and he is aiming to add to his CIK-FIA Asia-Pacific title by lifting the World Cup crown at the end of the weekend.
“I’m going out to La Conca feeling really confident,” he said. “I’ve been training really hard and I feel in great shape and the last few tests that we’ve done in the kart have all been really good, so I couldn’t ask for more going into the World Cup meeting,” he added.
Despite the ‘World’ status in the title, the event is not a World Championship. However, with the best KF2 drivers from around the globe taking part, it will certainly be the biggest test of Jack’s season and another FIA sanctioned title to aim for. As another ‘winner-take-all’ event, Jack will be trying as hard as possible during the weekend.
“It’s an incredibly high profile event and along with the European Championship and the Asia-Pacific title is one of the major trophies in the category. I definitely want to go out there and do well.
“It will certainly be a tough weekend as there is such a high calibre of drivers taking part. But, I prefer the bigger events, as the standard of driving is a lot higher and everything is so well organised. I’m going out there to do the best I can with every intention to come back with the World Cup title,” he added.
Jack’s season will then only have just two weeks left to run as he will head to the final round of the Winning Series of Karting at Zuera in Spain at the beginning of October, for what he hopes will be another title winning weekend. He currently lies second in the championship, just a single point behind the current leader.
“I can’t wait for Zuera. It’s been a tough but great season in the WSK series this year and I really want to take the title. It’s been one of my main focuses this season and I’m really looking forward to the next few weekends,” he added.
Jack will take to the Italian circuit for the first time on Thursday for free-practice, before the heats and finals get underway on Saturday and Sunday.
