About Me

My name is Louis Harvey and I am 13 years old. I love karting. I started racing in the Honda Cadet Class aged 8 but moved up to the Junior TKM class when I was 12. I won many trophies in my club championship racing both in cadets and TKM and in 2017 took on the challenge of racing in the SuperOne series with is the F1 of Karting in UK

How I Started

I started karting when I was 5. We were on holiday in Cornwall and on my fifth birthday my dad decided to take me go-karting. They he really worried that I was gonna crash but that day is when  my dad realized that I could drive. about a year later my dad took me to a local indoor circuit where I raced for about a year and a half. when I was 7 my dad got me a Honda Cadet GX160 go kart to go and practice on until I was eight. I practiced at kart circuits called forest edge and Camberley which I no longer go to. On my eighth birthday was my first race and my dad brought me a shark chassis, which was much better than the old one. I raced on that kart for 2 years until Shark Motorsport released a new shark attack chassis so we brought that. My first ever weekend racing that chassis I won my first ever race! But in October 2014 in the final round of the Rissington championship I had a big incident. I was looking to finish second in the championship when I flipped kart and was I was airlifted to hospital and stayed there for 36hrs. I was back racing after 8 weeks and back winning trophies. 

WHERE I AM TODAY

I have been racing now for over 5 years now and on the way collected quite a few trophies and so great Motorsport memorabilia. I have had top results in a number of club championships such as Rissington and Shenington as well as trophies from racing in Wales at the Llandow circuit. My favourite trophy to date is the really big one I collected for coming second in the South West Championship in 2016 but I am also very proud of my Top Privateer trophy from last year’s Superone series National Karting Championship which is shown on Sky TV.

Among my Motorsport Memorabilia is a Sign Cap I was personally given by Valtteri Bottas when I met him at Goodwood Festival of Speed last year along with one signed by Jenson Button. I also have a number of other famous driver Autographs.

In 2017 I was invited to be on the Wera Tools stand at The Goodwood Festival of Speed where I got to meet and greet people. I was also lucky enough to meet some more great drivers including the then current F1 Champion Nico Rosberg along with Robert Kubica, Nick Heidfeld, Pierre Gasly and Mark Higgins.
