Harry Nunn aiming to finish top of the year's Focus Cup

Ousden’s Harry Nunn may have only started competitively racing cars earlier this year, but he already has eyes fixed firmly on winning some silverware.

After racing go-karts for three years, Nunn stepped up to compete in the MSVR Focus Cup at the start of 2019.

And the transition has been relatively smooth, with the 17-year-old currently sitting fourth in the rankings after the opening two meetings at Donington Park and Snetterton.

However, rather than be content with his start to the campaign, Nunn instead is aiming for even more during the final five rounds, starting at Oulton Park in July.

“I feel like I have been a bit unlucky with my results and hopefully it will get a bit better,” he said.

“I want that top spot and it is still achievable because so much can happen in racing.

“With a bit more luck at Snetterton I would have picked up more points. I had a clutch problem after qualifying second and that dropped me down to last in one of the races, but I still managed to get up to fifth place.

“I am confident behind the wheel and hopefully over the next few months I can move up the table.”

Nunn would one day like to race in the British Touring Car Championship, though he is putting no pressure on himself to get there.

Nevertheless, he did recently underline his credentials when finishing second in qualifying to British Touring Car driver Jason Cook at Snetterton.

“I am just treating it as fun at this moment in time and will then take it from there,” added Nunn.

“If I could get somewhere near the British Touring Car Championship one day that would be a major bonus.

“There is no pressure to go far though, it is just about enjoyment.”

l Newmarket’s Daniel Petters had a mixed weekend during the latest round of the Pickup Truck Racing Championship at Brands Hatch.

After qualifying on pole for race one, it seemed Petters was on course for victory until a late mechanical issue dropped him down to seventh.

Meanwhile, in race two he managed to secure a fourth-placed finish after starting seventh on the grid.
