Kingdown Students, Alistair Mallard, Ben Lovell and Will Mallard, were crowned South West champions 2014 in the latest round of the British Student Karting Championships at Thuxton race track on Sunday, 27th April 2014. They have now qualified for the British Student Karting Championships National Finals, in Northampton on 18th & 19th of July.
The Kingdown students took part in the South West Finals of the British Student Karting Championships at Thruxton on Sunday, 27th April. The best 90 drivers from over 1000 entries in the South West had qualified through to this stage to fight it out to become South West Champions.
Kingdown racers drove brilliantly all day in appalling wet weather conditions, against very fast and often, very aggressive drivers, to eventually take the top spot and become South West Champions 2014. They now go forward to the National Final at the very challenging ‘Whilton Mill’ track, Daventry, Northampton, on Friday 18th and Saturday 19th July. They will be competing against the best teams from the rest of Britain – from nearly 6000 initial drivers!
Many Congratulations to the team and to Mr Leater who worked with them.
