Drawing the blue 10 ball meant he started 20th on the grid for heat 1 and as the green flag waved, the excitement was palpable.

Despite Mickel Motorsport’s best pit lane efforts, Musselle had to retire due to a left front tire puncture.


For the first time in the newcomer’s career Harri found himself on pole. He was accompanied by his dad, Paul, in the K-seal/Giggabox #3. The 28 machine started slowly, however he brought it together in the descend towards Graham Hill bend to hold a top 10 position. Sailing into Surtees, he was forced off the track and spun into the grass, putting him to the back of the pack. In the closing stages of Round 5, Harri was gunning for a top 20 finish, but he lost out by a hair-length leading up to the finish line.

Round 6

Heat 1

The Legends emerged on Sunday to an immense and energetic crowd, riled up for a day of all-American motorsport action. With all but 1 Mickel motorsport car starting in the front four rows, Musselle found steady progress amongst his teammates through Hailwoods hill. Later in the opening lap, another driver and the #28 tangled, spinning Harri onto the grass at clearways. Fortunately, he faced no damage and could continue hastily. Despite being knocked down to 25th, Harri fought his way to a fantastic 18th despite his setbacks, including 5 on track overtakes and a last lap dash to the line.

Heat 2

Succeeding in a hard-fought fight in heat 1, the hard work was far from finished as Harri now started 17th on the grid. With Mickel Motorsport teammates behind him, Harri got a good push off the line and stuck with the top 15 for the opening laps. Battling for 16th and putting in consistent low 56 second laps, the hard effort from the green machine was paying off. This fervent pace combined with effective race craft lead Harri to his first ever top 15 finish and a new quickest lap time of 55.921.


Off the back of a grand result, Harri started the final on the fourth row. A lunge around the outside into turn 1 led Harri to defend a 6th place position until the end of the first lap. The rookie was caught by the attacking champions journeying from the rear of the pack, but Musselle defended well leaving him 15th mid-race. Unfortunately for the Legends grid, an engine blowup led to oil being scattered across the entry to paddock hill bend. After multiple cars landed in the gravel the red flag was brought out to end another action-packed American speed Fest for Uk legends. Despite the curtail to the Legends’ time on track, the round ended in happiness for Harri and the team as his hard work and dedication earned him the title of Rookie of the Day.

“It was a great weekend all-round and I’m ecstatic to have achieved Rookie of the Day. The Mickel Motorsport team crafted the car to perfection and the support I gained all-round made this possible.

I’m looking forward to gaining more top 15 finishes and improving my race craft as we approach Rounds 7 & 8 at Donington Park.”
