Harry competed in the drift games nationals championship and most of the drift games extreme championship.

Not expecting to be part of the championship, Harry said;

“At the start of the season I definitely didn’t expect to be fighting for the championship come the last round but yet that was the case, sadly it didn’t work out the best way possible for me but was over the moon for Stephen, no man deserved it more than him.

“None of this would have been possible without my family, friends, team, spotter, sponsors and the amazing fans who come to event after event to support the drivers so I want to say a massive thank you to every one of you who’s included in that.”
