Harry Hannam getting to grips with the new race kart at the Euro Finals this summer

Harry Hannam steps up this year into kartings Rotax Series – Micro-Max class where we will see him competing in the National Championship here in the UAE as he enters into his rookie year of racing in a very competitive class of ‘lights to flag’ racing…
After finishing top of the Bambino championship for the last three years the 8 year old has been practicing in his new Micro-Max kart since his birthday in June and has already competed in his first ever International meeting at Speedworld in Austria for the Rotax Euro Finale.

Supported this year by EBC Brakes Middle East we traveled to Austria to join his teammates in the Energy Racing Academy. Harry put in a fantastic performance finishing 19th in the Micro-Max final. His passion and determination for the sport evident for all to see.
Much faster than Bambinos at 20secs a lap quicker and now experiencing ‘first across the line racing format’ rather than the time-trial style Harry was used to in the Bambino Class, he was quoted saying to his Dad at the track “I’m just so happy”
We are looking forward to seeing this spirited driver at the first meeting of the UAE Rotax Max Challenge on September 30th at Al Ain Raceway.

If you want to follow Harrys’ progress during the season and hear his race day diary from each event then keep dropping in for his updates…

That’s brave very brave

Thanks Williams ~! 🙏🏽😆😆

Not cool to have this as a best moment of your career

Good lad mate

They're known as The Finn Three: Valtteri Wingman, Kimi Iceman and Heikki Fireman

I remember this Fair play to him 👍🏻

I recall this... I remember thinking what a hero not just for putting the fire out almost single handedly but also for not bringing a blazing car into the pits which would further endanger people's lives. Made the right call and dealt with it like a professional

Spin beautiful

True Fair Play! 👏 and where were the flares to show the yellow flags?

If you look closely, there was blue jetted flame before the corner. The issue had already started.

Woooow gracias a Dios todo bien 🤭

We Finns know how (y)

Heikki probably wanted to add some fireworks of his own.

The original wingman!

The stewards will give him a black and white flag! 😂

Top class Fire marshal also sprayed the car

😱, 🥺 & <3

2010 Singapore. Propably one of the best editions of this GP. Alonso vs Vettel, great charge by Kubica and Heikki the Firefighter. Propably GPs like this won't happen for so long...

😟

😮😮

Jesus está voltando,se prepara para encontrares com o senhor teu Deus

Had the Halo been there he wouldn't have had as easy a time getting out. Imagine if the car had been upside down. A risk the FIA never seem to have considered.

that was really close

Nice

Well done, quick thinking not to choke up the pitlane.
