In 2017 Malmesbury School Pupil Louis Harvey (12) took on the top 30 British Junior TKM racing drivers in Sky TV’s SuperOne series and other televised national race events. As one of the youngest and least experienced drivers in this class at this level his only expectation was to do his best and make those who were supporting him proud of his efforts. Running as a Privateer with his Dad as his mechanic he achieved some great results including a number of top 10 finishes, at top privateer Trophy and pulled off some sterling recovery drives when the heats and qualifying had not gone his way. Junior TKM is the class that some of the most notorious drivers today competed in before reaching Formula one and include Jenson Button JTKM Champion 1992, F1 Test driver Gary Paffett JTKM Champion 1995 and even Lewis Hamilton raced in this series earlier in his career. Louis Harvey now 13 is looking to take on this challenge again in 2018 but without the support of sponsors this will not be possible. Motorsport is not a cheap sport and racing at such a high level is costly but with sponsors and supporters his dreams of one day becoming a Formula one or British Touring car driver can be a step closer. Please take the time to look at the additional information and the sponsorship opportunities below. If you’re not in a position to help please consider passing this request on to anyone who might like to get involved.

“Louis’ burning desire to climb the racing ladder came to our attention early 2017 when we were only too happy to provide the tools for use on the cart. We receive many approaches from the motorsport world, but very few represent attractive opportunities. Louis’ approach and the way he conducts himself is inspiring and addictive, so he stood well clear of the rest. He was a real credit during the Festival of Speed this year, when we were able to feature him on our stand. Happily this led to his introduction to some of the F1 teams. For 2018, we look forward to increasing our support and to see this budding talent grow”.

I’ve been working with him on developing his off‐track perception as a driver, and he has really progressed through the season; something that will hopefully benefit all his sponsors. I’m certainly very pleased to have him representing my business.”

“As a proud sponsor of Louis in 2017, I’ve watched him overcome a season with both highs and lows. It’s been exciting, and what’s incredible is his ability to step up each time, and make it look like he’s taking it in his stride. The team behind Louis, and his personal drive for success will get him to where he wants to be. I’m sure in 2018 Louis will use all he has learnt this year, and turn it into a season to remember!”
