Jack Harvey is one of Britain's brightest motor racing prospects. At 21, he has already won ten driver Championships, including the 2012 British F3 Championship, and is touted by a number of industry experts as one to watch for the future.
Motorsport has been in his family for as long as he can remember. Jack's father was into karting when he was younger and more recently raced in the National Auto Grass Championship, winning his class in 2002. Jack's uncle is also a motorsports fan and still races supercars.
As a child, Jack was quite into football, playing for the local village football team with his friends from school. It was actually his father who introduced him into karting, thinking it would be something Jack would enjoy and suggested he have a go.
With encouragement from his father, Jack stuck with karting and made a group of friends at the track and really start to enjoy it. Bit by bit, Jack began to win races, and then Championships, and he started to believe this was something he was good at and could potentially have a career in, and the rest is history!
