Teenager makes a winning start in Junior Pro Extreme Karts
Aaron Alexander, the four-time 2018 Cadet 200cc Extreme karting champ, took the move up in class in his stride.
Alexander, 13, raced for the first time over the Christmas period in the Junior Pro Extreme Karts, which has double the power compared to the cadet class.
Making his Pro Kart debut at the Teesside Autodrome, in Middlesbrough, for the 2019 – 0 Plate title, Alexander managed to qualify on pole position in the damp slippery conditions.
This put him first on the grid for heat 1. The youngster went on to win all his heats and the final for the 0 plate trophy/title and the first place prize provided by the circuit owners Paul and Kat Franklin.
It was the dream start for the King Edward VII Academy pupil in his Pro Extreme karting machine.
The first race in the Junior Pro Karts Championship will be held at Teesside on February 24 before the start of the Shennington Championship on March 3.
