Sayell was taken wide on the start of heat two dropping to third, he moved up to second a lap later, taking the lead on lap six and the win four laps later.

On pole for the final the start was frantic, Sayell down to fifth at the end of lap one.

Overtaking a kart per lap, Sayell was up to second on lap four.

Despite a vehement defence from the leader, Sayell got past by lap seven going on to take the fastest lap, his third win of the day for the top step of the podium.

He finished second in Sunday’s round eight qualifying.

Held wide on the start of heat one, Sayell came out of first hairpin in fourth.

A lap later the young driving ace made his way up to third, second on lap seven and with a bold move into the second chicane took the lead two laps later finishing 1.5 seconds ahead at the flag, while also taking the fastest lap.

Heat two’s track was wet and greasy making it hard to get across to the racing line.

Stuck in a train of karts, Sayell was in fifth at the half-way mark 2.6 seconds behind the leader.

It started to rain which suited his kart and he took two karts in one move in the penultimate corner for third on lap eight of nine, overtaking them again on the final lap for second.

On pole for the final, he made a faultless start and with five fastest laps had pulled away from the rest of the grid with a 3.5 second lead when a kart spun into the barrier bringing out a full course yellow.

The chequered flag a lap later confirmed Sayell’s fifth win.

Dad, Rob was very impressed, “We came into this weekend hoping to gain some good points, Jenson didn’t disappoint and has brought us right back into the championship fight”.

Going into the weekend 27 points behind the leader, the youngster is now just three points adrift.

He was interviewed for Sunday's live stream coverage and thanked his team TWRacing, GW Driver Development, Force Motorsport for engine power, his family and sponsors: InfinityX, VROOAM, Prestige Designs, Chris Phillips - Superstox 99 and local sponsors JLK Vehicle Solutions, Ark East Anglia Ltd, Hall Clean, and Professional Aesthetic Enhancements Kings Lynn.

This weekend, Sayell returns to Fulbeck for the final round of the Cadet Kart Championship in which he is currently second.
