Harvey eyes more 116 Trophy

BTCC champion and son Jamie Harvey are keen to return to the low-cost BMW endurance series

British Touring Car champion Tim Harvey has confirmed he and his son Jamie are keen to do more 116 Trophy races together following their debut in the series ten days ago.

The 1992 BTCC champion Harvey alongside Jamie, ran competitively in the low-cost endurance contest at Silverstone and finished third on the road. However, fell to sixth in the results via track-limits penalties.

Harvey told Motorsport News before the race that if their 116 Trophy debut went well, he and Jamie would look to do more races, and after the race, Tim confirmed this was the case. “It was great, it was everything we wanted, the car was great, the championship was really welcoming, we had a perfect trouble-free weekend, some good testing laps on Friday, qualified well, fifth was better than we could have expected first time out, and we had a great race,” Tim told MN.

“The pace was really good all the way through, and the racing was very well behaved. We’ve loved being part of it. “I’ll talk to Jamie, but I’m sure he’ll be very keen to do some more [116 races], so watch this space, and we’ll see if we can align our diaries and get back out.”
