EBC Brakes official EBC distributors MSW (Motorsport Wheels Dubai) have just announced they are sponsoring eight year old Harry Hannam, a young United Arab Emirates karter who stepped up from Bambino Class to the more powerful Rotax Max Class to race in the UAE National Championship 2016/2017 season.
This was an inspired move by the Dubai based EBC distributors to support young future talent rather than selecting a high profile racer, as such backing will help to boost Harry through the many levels of motorsport in years to come.

Jon Simmonds, managing director of Motorsport Wheels said:

Harry has already shown what an exciting prospect he has for the future of regional motorsport and it’s obvious to see just how much he loves his karting, always demonstrating real commitment to his racing. I am delighted to support his future ambitions within Team Energy at the outset of what I’m confident will be an exciting and rewarding racing career.

Harry will be using EBC kart brakes which have been manufactured in the UK for many years and are available in three different types of brake pad materials, including softer green high friction formula, red general purpose use formula and gold sintered formula. (See more kart brake pad product information below.)

Over the last three years, Harry has finished top of the Bambino Championship Class and has been putting in lots of practice with Micro Max karts since he became old enough to drive them this summer. Harry now has experience in his new class after racing in the Rotax Euro Finale at Speedworld in Australia when he managed to finish in an encouraging 19th place against a field of top international racers. He is looking forward to the start of the UAE Rotax Max Challenge Championship which starts this weekend at the Al Ain Raceway on Friday 7th October 2016.

Harry said:

This is it, this is exactly what I’m supposed to do! Stepping up to the next class is amazing and I am already enjoying my time in the kart. Now I just want to have a successful season and hopefully move upwards from there.
