Giggabox Welcomes a Rising Star: Harri Musselle Takes the Wheel!
Following in Paul’s Footsteps: Harri Takes the Wheel
Giggabox is thrilled to introduce an exciting addition to our racing family: Paul Musselle’s 16-year-old Harri is set to embark on a remarkable journey as he takes the wheel of the #28 Legends car for the upcoming Snetterton and Brands Hatch rounds of the championship. Harri Musselle, a young and passionate driver, is brimming with excitement to hit the track after a whirlwind two weeks of testing with the team.
Harri Musselle, despite his youth, is no stranger to the adrenaline-pumping world of motorsports. His passion for racing ignited at a young age, seeing him volunteer with the Mickel Motorsport team through his school career. Propelling himself from team assistant to apprentice mechanic, and now, the youngest driver on the Legends grid, Harri’s journey is all about growth, development, and the pursuit of excellence in the challenging world of motorsport.
At just 16 years old, Harri Musselle is determined to prove himself on the racetrack. His excitement, coupled with the unwavering support of the Giggabox Motorsport team, sets the stage for a young talent eager to learn and improve with each lap. Harri understands that this season is not about immediate success; it’s about embracing the learning curve and using it to fuel his development.
In and out of the office, the Giggabox team have been rallying round to support Harri as he approaches his big debut. The team are geared up and have been wishing him well as he embarks on this journey. The Mickel Motorsport team have expertly crafted the car, and as we head into Snetterton, like every event, this will be nothing short of a joint effort.
Navigating Uncharted Territory
Harri’s journey hit a pivotal milestone earlier this month when he successfully completed his ARDS test, getting his Motorsport UK competition licence. On the 15th of September, he seized the opportunity to test his mettle in the Legends car at Brands Hatch. Blessed with sunny weather and a meticulously prepared car courtesy of the multi-championship winning Mickel Motorsport team, Harri started his first of four testing sessions, supported by the Giggabox team. Using the sessions to find his footing, he guided the car around the track, learning where he’ll need to improve his race craft and where he felt the car working for him.
Harri faced unique challenges on his path to becoming a racer. The Covid pandemic disrupted traditional race meets for nearly two years, pushing Harri to adapt. During this period, he turned to sim racing and immersed himself in the study of racing cars. This newfound knowledge became his trusted ally, equipping him with a base level of understanding of the tracks he’d soon start to race. Likewise, his impressive car control, recovery, and coordination were a testament to his dedication.
With less than two weeks to go, Harri is gearing up for his Legends debut at Snetterton, and looking on to his later races at Brands Hatch. These iconic circuits have witnessed legendary battles, and Harri is excited for the thrill of experiencing them first hand. Snetterton, known for its high-speed straights and challenging corners, will be the backdrop to Harri’s first Legend’s race. Brands Hatch, with its iconic twists and turns, will provide the opportunity to experiment with handling and manoeuvring through the track. The team at Giggabox can see Harri’s great potential and are excited to support him in using this season as an opportunity to grow and develop.
