Harvey admitted it had been a tough year as he battled to beat Michael Caine to the overall title.
"It was one of those epic years," he said after collecting his awards from Geoff Turral, General Manager Marketing, Porsche Cars GB Limited. "It's been a fantastic year and we had to work very hard for the title," said Harvey, before confirming plans to defend his crown in 2009. "I have every intention of coming back again next year!"

The awards for second and third overall in the championship were presented to Caine and Sam Hancock, while Tony Gilham was presented with the award for runner-up in Pro-Am1. In the Pro-Am2 category, Glynn Geddie and Tommy Dreelan collected their awards.
