Harvey makes it two on the bounce in Euro Tour

Joe Harvey once again proved a class above as he recorded two race victories on Saturday to take home the second round of the AquaX Euro Tour in Milford Haven.

The flatter water on Sunday allowed the competition to bridge the gap and Tim Batte took advantage to record his first victory of the season but it wasn’t enough to knock Harvey off top spot.

Harvey now takes a commanding lead in the Pro Euro Tour standings with the final round in Port Bilas, Spain still to come.

The 2016 International Cup champion was racing at his very best on Saturday has he lapped virtually the whole field in race one and took yet another comfortable victory in race two ahead of Batte and Russell Marmon.

It was a slightly different story as Batte took victory on the calm water on Sunday, Harvey settling for second ahead of Marmon who was a consistent third all weekend.

With Jordan Lambert outside the podium places and Rainer Eidner unable to race this weekend Harvey now takes a huge lead in the championship standings and looks sure to add to his AquaX trophy collection if he can complete all three races in Spain in October.

In the 300 AM class Thomas Batisse took first place ahead of Richard Cable and Claude Vangansbeck, whilst in the 200 AM class Toni Luciano was victorious with Carl Lofthouse and Dave Lee in behind.

Simon Gill was pushed all the way by Nicolas Devys in the ski class but eventually came out on top with Harry Robinson back in third.

In the Spark class it was Frenchman Maxime Benoit who finished on the top step of the podium ahead of Thibaut Olivier and Tom Miller.

The final round of the AquaX Euro Tour takes place in Port Bilas, Spain on October 14/15. Check out Facebook for all the highlights of the weekend’s action!
