Oliver Clarke is celebrating a fantastic run of results in his Honda Cadet karting with nine first place podium positions since autumn 2014.

The 12-year-old races karts at tracks all around the country and is looking forward to competing in the prestigious British Championship Super One Series which starts in April.

Past names in this series include current F1 champion Lewis Hamilton and ex-F1 champion Jensen Button.

Oliver, who lives near Downham, said: “I am delighted with my current form and feeling confident ahead of the British championships that I can continue racing from the front.

“My team BRK give me fantastic support and I would like to thank them and my Dad for all they do to get me on the track.”

Oliver, who is a pupil at Iceni Academy at Methwold, is also leading the TVKC winter championships at the prestigious PFI race track by 10 points and is keen to secure his name on the trophy on March 1.

The West Norfolk ace is being tipped as a driver to watch now and for the future and his ambition is to make it to Formula One. If you would like to sponsor Oliver please contact Jeremy Clarke on 01553 810851.
