Over the entire series, the Protrain Racing youngster raced in a variety of challenging circumstances – from a snow covered track through to battling it out with European level opposition and even British champions.

Protrain Racing Team principal Gary Chapman said: “Luke is a young talented driver who has only competed in a few races at this level of driving and he was the star driver in the team over the weekend.”

Luke thanked all the individuals who have supported him, especially corporate sponsor Train with Brett. If you would like to help or find out more about Luke in his quest to advance further in motorsport, please contact Paul Richardson 01442 300282 or at [email protected]
