Harvey Smith has been competing in GT15 since the age of nine and has achieved notable success in the UK, European and World Championships, having been named the current British champion and an ambassador for the RYA.
Harvey has been rewarded with the opportunity to race in the Formula 1 support class for 2019 as a junior driver in the Formula 4 class for F1 Atlantic. As this class supports the Formula 1 series, Harvey is hopeful that it will become a springboard into Formula 1 in the future.
Ahead of his first race in June, Barrus will supply Harvey with the newly released Mercury 15hp EFI outboard engine for testing and evaluation purposes. Barrus, in conjunction with Harvey Smith Racing, will be looking at the possibility of competing in Coniston Powerboat Records Week later this year with the newly released products.
In addition to Barrus supplying the engine and parts, Lee Allen, Technical Service Manager for the Marine Leisure Division, will be providing Harvey with technical support to optimise the engine and boat set-up and offer support during races.
