Harvey piled the pressure on pole-sitter and 2017 UIM GT15 World Champion Adam Wrenkler during the first heat of the Tonsberg Batrace this morning.
Wrenkler finally succumbed to that pressure when he spun out at the bottom of the course, Harvey gained precious ground and just when it was looking like he could take his chance, the race was red flagged.
Mathilde Wiberg from Sweden got caught up between 2 turn buoys and the race was stopped. Due to the fact that over 70% had been completed, the race positions count as the results.
Harvey has certainly found some speed since he last faced Wrenkler in the World Championships and it bodes well for the rest of the weekend.
