    Round 1 of the Auto 66 Club Championships - 9/3/03
    Formula Pro Street Championship - 2nd, 4th, 3rd
    Open Class 125cc to 1300cc - 8th, 7th, 6th
    Count of Carnaby Invitation Race - 5th
    Harrison Bros. Racing's Richard Harrison made his debut on the Yamaha R1 at Carnaby Two this weekend. And what a weekend it was, after riding the bike once at an Elvington test day the week previous, it was now time to put up or shut up!
    Richard Entered two classes so as to get more track time than usual as this is what he is severely lacking at this stage in the year on the new bike.
    However due to his good results throughout the day he was also invited to
    take part in the 15lap feature race the 'Count of Carnaby'
    Richard had an excellent ride in the first race of the Formula Pro Street
    class to lead the way for most of the race, however as Richards inexperience
    showed on the new bike he was beaten to the line in the last two laps.
    Pleased with this result, and with the confidence flying high Richard
    managed to record another two top 4 finishes in this class.
    Richard didn't have it all his own way in the Open class races and despite
    being caught up in traffic for most of the time, 3 top 10 finishes added to
    the tally. As if that wasn't enough Richard was also invited to take his
    place in the main race of the day, the 'Count of Carnaby'. Despite feeling
    the effects throughout the final race of the day Richard stuck to the task
    and produced another top 5 placing and also gained some prize money in doing
    so. A good day by all.
    Richard's next outing is to be in the BSB National Superstock Championships
    at Silverstone on the 28th-30th March. Richard would like to thank everybody
    mentioned below in helping to support him in his first ride on the Yamaha
    R1, and he hopes that results like these will continue throughout the year
    with your support
    Many Thanks
    Harrison Bros. Racing
