West Norfolk karting ace bags second place in final of Junior Pro Kart Championships




West Norfolk karting ace Aaron Alexander maintained his championship lead in the Junior Pro Kart Championships with a second-place finish in the final of the fourth round at The Teesside Autodrome.

Saturday practice went very well in the dry conditions with the KES pupil recording personal best times.

Qualifying on Sunday was very wet, with the youngster getting third spot on the grid for heat one.

Heat one saw Alexander make a good start, taking the lead of the race on the first lap.

But this was soon to change as he was on wet tyres and the track had dried out very quickly.

He soon dropped down to fourth, but defended his position for the last two laps.

Starting from fourth on the grid, Alexander took victory in the second heat and followed it up with another one in the third, even though Mason Barker was on his bumper for all ten laps.

Starting second on the grid for the final, Alexander managed to get a good start and took the lead on the first lap.

But Barker stayed on his bumper and managed to take the lead from him half-way through the race to claim victory by a mere 0.05 of a second after a late rally from the West Norfolk youngster.

Alexander and his team thank sponsors Ax Supercars, 24/7 Self Store King’s Lynn, Lettingsupermarket.com, MKM Building Supplies and Howdens Joinery for their continued support.

Next up is round four of the Shennington Championship, in Oxfordshire, this weekend where Alexander is currently third in the standings.
