Harry Hannam starts 2017 race season with EBC go kart brakes

Eight year old upcoming karting star Harry Hannam has just raced at his first meeting of the 2017 season when he attended Round One of the Dubai ‘O’ Plate Championship equipped with EBC go kart brakes. This was Harry’s first outing since recovering from a broken arm which he sustained in an accident six weeks ago at the Al Ain National Championships.

A technical issue during the qualifying round meant that Harry unfortunately had to start each of the following heats in the last position on the grid. Despite this Harry raced well to move up to 3rd position in Heat One, but further bad luck struck when one of his kart wheels came loose forcing the kart to slow and finish in 5th.  Harry went on to gain two 4th place finishes in Heats Two & Three. On day two Harry achieved further mixed results, but despite all his efforts to catch up he just missed out on a podium position by 0.3 seconds.

This is an encouraging first outing for Harry who has just returned to the kart racing world after his accident. Once his confidence on the track builds further, we should start seeing some great results. Many thanks to EBC Brakes official EBC distributors MSW (Motorsport Wheels Dubai) who are sponsoring Harry again this season.
