But that Mitchell van Dijk seems really fast! Like way ahead of the others.

Ooops, actually I was looking at the total time, and not best lap time. Still, as a qualifying heat I'm guessing it is the overall time that counts. Otherwise Harry had the 4th fastest lap.

Henrik, your 2 finishing places in the 2 qualifying sessions added together determines your position for Heat 1. Harry tied with No. 2 Siimesvaara Alvar on 13 points and will start 5th.
We think that may be an advantage, as he will get a tow from the drivers on 3 or 4.

We are very pleased with him so far, could not ask a lot more of him.

First in the Pre Final, that gives him pole position for tomorrows final, can't ask for more than that.
Great driving from the front 3, they pulled away and then it was only between them for the last few laps.
Big Buzz after that.

I'm so mad right now! I had the live stream going and was going to watch Harry's race. Then I got called in to a meeting just as the race started!!!!

Great job from the little guy and I would have loved to see him win that race.

Damn, I wish there was a replay function! Maybe I can find it on youtube...

Is the race around the same time tomorrow?

Okay, I have found the whole daily live feed on Youtube. For now yesterday's feed is available, so later I am sure I can get today's so as to watch Harry's race.

I did watch the one from yesterday though. I loved the commentator specifying that "Harry Hannam, the only driver that supports Millwall FC". I see you have some influence on the grandson!!!

Outstanding pass! Very well set up and executed, really shows that he is a thinking driver. The best was that he immediately managed to get a decent gap to not have to block anybody and could focus on his line. Damn he is good!

Thanks, just over 2 hours to go, you can imagine how shot the nerves are.

Dannyboy, in case it has not been done yet, we need to ensure that you name Harry as a Shamuist!

Well done! It was a bit frustrating how he got caught up there and lost too many places. Looked like he was suffering a bit from straight line speed.

H, yes I think he deserved a podium place, unlucky to get boxed in like that, but invaluable experience for him and he can still race that class next year.
