It was a masterclass of offshore racing from the Kawasaki rider as he lived up to his promise of “smashing the Europeans and bringing something back for the Brits.”
In tough conditions on Saturday, Harvey and his Kawasaki excelled to land victory ahead of Frenchman Jordan Lambert and fellow Brit Dave Huddleston, who was returning from some time away from the sport and put in an excellent performance.
The second race followed a similar pattern as Harvey led from start to finish, this time lapping the whole field to win by a comfortable margin from German Rainer Eidner, who had overcome mechanical issues from Saturday to finish second, and Lambert.
As storm clouds rolled in the water conditions flattened off handing the advantage to the SeaDoo and Yamaha riders, in particular Eidner and Lambert who took full advantage in the early stages.
Having fallen well behind, the wind picked up with 10 minutes of racing to go and Harvey took full advantage, wearing down the leading two before passing Lambert for second as the minutes ticked away.
And with the white flag out and the riders on their last lap, Harvey’s stamina saw him overtake Eidner and collect a hat-trick of wins in emphatic style.
Eidner’s second saw him overtake Lambert for second on the weekend as the Frenchman slipped back to fourth in the final race, whilst Huddleston was three points back in fourth on his return.
In the 300 amateur class it was a masterclass from Thomas Batisse who collected three victories from three, whilst one point separated Belgian Claude Vangansbeck and Brit David Coe for the remaining podium positions.
Nick Brockbanks took the 250 class victory whilst Toni Luciano took a clean sweep of victories on home soil in the 200 class, followed by Brits Carl Lofthouse and Paul Handley.
