Karl Harris: 'I want the Moto1 title' - September 13th 2004

    British Supersport Championship star Karl Harris has set his sights on being the first rider to lift the Moto1 crown at the inaugural event on October 30-31 at Donington Park.

    And Harris has the pedigree to be Britain's best all-round motorcycle sports star. In addition to his British Supersport championship wins Harris won no less than 15 motocross titles in schoolboy and youth competition.

    'I'm going all out to win it,' Harris reveals. 'I'm confident about my chances in the supermoto and motocross events itıs just the trials where Iıll have to put some effort in beforehand.'

    He jokes: 'And I should be OK for a top three finish in the road racing segment!'

    Harris is chasing the £6000 first prize and recognises the strength of opposition he faces in the star-studded event.

    'I'm pretty sure most of the off road lads will fancy their chances,' says Harris. 'They have good machine control ability and can easily adapt, if anything spooks them it may be the speed element of the road racing event.

    'I know John McGuinness is fancying his chances but Iım ready to give him a lesson or two!'

    And Harris adds: 'Honda is fully supporting me with all the machinery I need and I just canıt wait to get going.'

    The Moto1 spectacular involves 24 of Britain's leading motorcycle sportsmen doing battle during a frantic two days of competition over four disciplines; road racing, motocross, supermoto and trials.

    Moto1 action will run from 9am to 4.30pm each day. Additional attractions include the final round of the World Stunt Riding championship, a World Long Jump record attempt, freestyle motocross demonstrations, youth trials and motocross, a National Supermoto, two days of road races, a Classic Parade, the 'world famous' Purple Helmets and an extensive trade exhibition.

    Event Managing Director Robbie Allan believes: 'Having riders of the calibre of Karl Harris at Moto1 will be a real spectacle for the fans. Everyone knows Karl as a road racer but his off road ability will impress everyone.'
