West Norfolk karting ace loses power in final
Aaron Alexander and the AA Racing team suffered problems at the third round of the SKS Junior Pro Kart Extreme championships at the Shennington circuit.
The team got the set up perfect for the first practice/test session on Saturday, but it soon went wrong in the second session, when the KES Academy lad was in a heavy crash when his brake pedal broke on a high speed sector of the circuit.
Alexander managed to put it into a slide to lose as much speed as possible before piling into the tyre wall sideways and, thankfully, walked away from the crash with just a few bruises.
The team managed to rebuild the race kart ahead of Sunday’s races which saw the youngster qualify on pole and go on to win all his three heats.
But it all went wrong again in the final when he lost power to one of the two engines, seeing him drop from first to last, finishing the final two laps down to leave him third in the standings.
Alexander and his team will next race at the Teesside Autodrome on May 26 where he is the championship leader after the opening three rounds.
