Jack Harvey Powers To Two Indy Lights Podium Finishes At Indianapolis Race

British racing driver Jack Harvey secured another two Indy Lights podium finishes at the latest round of the Championship, this time at the world-famous Indianapolis track. Harvey’s tally of podium finishes now tallies four, despite it being the rookie season for the Schmidt Peterson Motorsports (SPM) driver.

On Friday, the Racing Steps Foundation-backed driver had a strong qualifying session, setting the third fastest time of the session. Since the last race in Alabama, the team had worked tirelessly to close the gap to the front runners and the results were apparent in this weekend’s qualifying session.

Just before the first race of the season, there was a heavy rain shower, which soaked the entire track and caused all drivers to start on grooved Cooper tyres. Harvey had a frustrating start to the race when he was hit by another car and was forced to re-join the track down in P7. Undeterred, Harvey set a series of impressive lap times and carved his way through the field. After just four laps he had made up four positions and was running back in P3. During this time, the front runners had managed to pull out a gap ahead of Harvey which was too great to close and meant that when the checkered flag fell, Harvey crossed the finish line in P3.

Harvey started race two on Saturday in P3 and made a lightning start, moving straight up to second place. Harvey was right on the back of race-leader Razia but with teammates matching their lap times, lap for lap, was unable to find a way past and crossed the finish line in P2, taking a further 40 Championship points.

“It’s been a very promising race weekend and it’s a great result for the whole team to be coming away with a second place and a third place finish. The team have worked incredibly hard over the past two weeks and it’s been clear all weekend that we have now closed the gap right up to the front runners;” commented Jack Harvey.

“It’s a little frustrating not to be coming away with two wins as we have had the pace all weekend to be on the top step of the podium. In the first race I was pushed off the track, so immediately lost any chance of securing a win and in the second race I had the same pace as the race leader but there wasn’t an opportunity to get past. However we can take a lot of positives away from this weekend and we will keep pushing for that first race win!” continued Jack Harvey.

2014 Indy Lights Championship standings:

(1) Zach Veach 229 points

(2) Luiz Razia 224 points

(3) Gabby Chaves 215

(4) Jack Harvey 207 points

(5) Matthew Brabham 192 points

(6) Vittorio Ghirelli 93 points

The next round of the Indy Lights series will take place at Indianapolis on May 23rd.
