West Norfolk karting ace closes in on becoming four-time champion
Teenage karting ace Aaron Alexander claimed victory in the 200cc Extreme CadetSKS Championship at the Shennington Circuit, in Oxfordshire, last weekend.
The West Norfolk youngster is closing in on becoming a four-time champion in 2018 with just a month of the season remaining. His AA Racing team were kept busy during a very wet and cold weekend but it didn’t prevent them from enjoying further success.
Alexander went out for qualifying on Sunday morning in torrential rain and still got pole position followed in by his team partner in second.
The heats saw plenty of action but Alexander managed to win them both putting him on pole position for the final.
He made a good start but at the end of the first lap he got hit from behind hard by the championship leader, which spun him off the circuit to put him near last.
The King Edward VII Academy pupil refused to give up because he knew he needed the points towards his championship total.
Determined to still make his mark, Alexander drove hard to pass all of his competitors and got himself back in the lead before crossing the line for the chequered flag. Victory handed him top spot on the podium and the overall championship lead.
Alexander thanks sponsors 24/7 Self Storage, Best@Bars and TheModernizer for their continued support.
