Jake Har­ris to grad­u­ate to Su­per­car with an ex-pat Do­ran DS 3 racer

Motor Sport News - - Sporting Scene -

Jake Har­ris will grad­u­ate to the Su­per­car cat­e­gory in Bri­tish Ral­ly­cross this year, rac­ing a Citroen DS 3 Su­per­car.

Har­ris sam­pled the ex-pat Do­ran ma­chine at a test in France last year, be­fore mak­ing his de­but at the Ral­ly­cross Grand Prix at Croft in Oc­to­ber, where he fin­ished in the B fi­nal.

“Each time I step out of the Su­per­car I feel I gain more knowl­edge, more con­fi­dence and with it more speed,” said Har­ris. “My at­ti­tude for the year is to keep learn­ing and to progress as a driver. I started steady at Croft last year and built up the pace through­out the day. I came away from the event happy, feel­ing com­fort­able in the car and with my pace.

“Every driver on the grid wants to win, but I have no doubt about how hard the com­pe­ti­tion is this year. I’m con­fi­dent in the car and that I’m learn­ing quickly. I hope for some good bat­tles as the year goes on and hope­fully we can get some podium fin­ishes.”

Har­ris fin­ished third over­all in the RX150 cat­e­gory last sea­son. He said: “I loved my time in RX150S, some great driv­ers have taken part in the class and I am def­i­nitely go­ing to miss it, but the Su­per­car, it is a big step up. There is much more to think about in­side the car, so it will def­i­nitely be a big­ger chal­lenge to be com­pet­i­tive.”

Har­ris made it to the B fi­nal on his first run in the ex-do­ran DS 3 Su­per­car
