Hi & thanks for clicking on this post.
I'm 16 and started driving karts when I was 6 and since have been obsessed with racing and winning.

I work hard at ensuring that I and my equipment are in the best condition and I use what I have available to the best of

my ability to maximise my potential. To date I have won multiple championships including National Titles and will keep working to realise my goals.

Currently I race in the UK in the X30 Senior class with Jack Dex Racing and I am focusing on achieving my next goal which is to win UK & European kart series with my long-term goal being to drive professionally.

erships I have built up over the last few years enable me to be competitive against those with a substantially higher racing budget and as such I highly value those who support me, I always give 100% and always go to win!

If anyone is interested please come and follow me on Instagram & Facebook and should you be interested in coming on-board with me and my racing please drop me a message or use the 'Contact me' section of my website.

Thanks Adam, back out at Whilton Mill this weekend so don't get all tied up with the F1 nonsense, youtube and Alpha Live broadcast from Round 4 of the @Fastr 2022 WMKC Championship

Is this today? Vid says May 2021, maybe wrong link?

On a side note, how do you get to/from track logistically, is it a big operation or a simple tow box and awning type setup? You are clearly very good and competitive, so interesting to see how you rock up and prepare compared to others

Onto Sunday at WMKC
IMG_20220424_084159_505.jpg

Heat 2 P17 to P2
Should have been another win but the driver in front was more worried about defending in the 1st 3 laps than wanting to win so took me a while to get past.
20220424_092158.jpg

Heat 3 P6 to Win
On lap 3 got hit by the same driver again.....not sure what id done to upset him but sideswiped so hard it bent a track rod and the front end of the kart. This made it a very hard race as the kart didn't want to go right, pulled to the left like a b*tch on the straighs but got to the flag.

Now it was the final but in between had to sort the wagon. Big thanks to @coles racing letting me and dad jump on their flatt table to sort the kart.
A bit of tweaking, new trackrod and some speedy laser alignment and we got called to the grid.

We started pole and ended up winning by 6 seconds so a good weekend overall.

Good to see the clerks following through on penalties for track limits as they warned at briefing as well.

One last thing, hope the Honda cadet kid is OK as it wasn't a nice shunt.
