Harvey split his time in 2023 running between the WA Saloon Car series, Saloon Nationals, Toyota 86 Series, and the Circuit Excel SA Enduro.
His foray into the 86 series was with the Toyota Gazoo Racing Australia scholarship series where he had varied success through the year in his appearances with the final round showing his true form picking up a podium finish.
Harvey’s run at the Saloon Car Nationals title netted him 2nd overall finishing behind Tickford Racing’s Super2 driver Brad Vaughan.
Back in the West Harvey broke the Collie Motorplex record with a brisk 1:18:44 in his TriBridge Falcon AU and finished the Motorpsort Australia 2023 champion 42 points ahead of his nearest rival backing up his 2022 top of the table finish which came in just his second year in the Saloon category after cutting his teeth in the WA Excel Cup series in the years preceeding.
After wrapping the WA championship, Harvey joined other WA talent Jackson Callo entering the South Australian Excel Enduro where they placed 9th overall.
Harvey’s affable personality has kept his sponsors coming back for more with Ninety9Motorsport and Misch’s Excel Garage supporting his Gazoo and Excel races, joining regular supporters Tribridge Motorsport, Show TV New Zealand, Foxroofing WA, WA Racing Developments, Hiflow Engine Reconditioning, Nutech Signs and Print and driver coach BD Soutar-dawson in their assitance to keep Harvey on four wheels and competitive in motorsport.
Moving into 2024 as mentioned at the beginning of this article, Harvey has signed up to race with Corish Motorsports in the 2024 Battery World Aussie Racing Cars Super Series.
The 2024 Battery World Aussie Racing Cars Super Series features over 7 rounds on the Supercars and Australian Superbike Championship support card starting with the Bathurst 500 on February 23 – 25.
“The drive in the Aussie Racing Car Series came about after a fellow competitor from the Toyota 86 series recommended partnering up with Corish motorsports as they are an up and coming team in the series with a strong driver lineup this year ahead of the first round with 4 cars on the grid for Bathurst.” said Harvey
“I’m looking forward to the variety of tracks especially Bathurst and the street circuits. Being able to race alongside Supercars at these tracks will be a cool experience. The cars themselves will be awesome to drive especially in big fields across the year with some close door to door racing.”
“I think it will make for some pretty cool moves and having to really hustle the car similar to driving a go kart.”
Joining the Supercars support card comes with its perks with the average viewership per full race broadcast around the 100k mark and attendances across an average of 7 rounds of Supercars sitting at 800k the exposure Harvey will be bringing to his long term supporters will no doubt bolster support for his future motorsport endeavours. However, as Harvey and any other competitor will always tell you, more are always welcome.
Its been a couple of years since we shoved a camera in Harvey’s face but check out this interview from 2022 just after he started his assault on the WA Saloon Cars Championship
