West Norfolk karting ace secures further sponsorship deal

West Norfolk karting champion Jenson Sayell has secured a new sponsorship from King’s Lynn business JLK Vehicle Solutions for the 2024 season.

Owner Jordan Kendal, himself a successful kart racer, started as a cadet in 1999 and has returned to the track in a UK100 over the last two years.

After linking up with Sayell, Kendal said: “I decided to sponsor Jenson as he is one of the most naturally talented and smoothest drivers I've seen, he reminds me of a young Jenson Button.

"He's a lovely lad and hasn't let all the winning he's done go to his head and goes about his racing quietly and respectfully.

"He's a much liked racer amongst his competitors, and a perfect driver to have our support. We wish him all the best with 2024 and look forward to attending various races to support him and his fantastic team.

“Personally I know how much dedication it takes to compete in karting, and how much it costs just to turn up, let alone to compete at the front so hopefully our support will help him that one step further along his journey.”

Sayell took his Minimax 950 to Hunts Kart Racing Club at the weekend to use their final round of the year, as a testing opportunity for his next year’s kart.

He had sown up the 2023 Micromax championship there last month.

Despite a grid including more experienced drivers, horrendous weather and only his second outing in the new kart, the youngster took both heat wins and was in the lead of the final when he caught a kerb fractionally early causing him to spin with just two laps to go eventually finishing third.

Jenson's dad Rob said: “We entered Kimbolton hoping for a top six place, Jenson’s very fast pace in Saturday practice raised our expectations to a top three. I’m so impressed with how Jenson has adapted to the new class.

"We are really pleased to have JLK Vehicle Solutions on board, Jordan’s karting experience will be very helpful."

Sayell will collect the 2023 HKRC Micromax Champion trophy in January before more testing.

The team gratefully thanks JKL Vehicle Solutions, HD Installations and Chris Phillips- Superstox 99 for their invaluable support.
