Tring School pupil Luke Richardson has come to the end of a superb year in which he won the inaugural InKart Junior Championship 2015 at Daytona Tamworth and showed his dominance by winning most of the races.

Furthermore, the 13-year-old finished second in the Daytona 2015 Junior National Circuit Championship at Milton Keynes.

It was very close after 11 races as ‘Lightning’ Luke finished on the same points as the winner, but lost out on claw-back after suffering an engine failure in a race in which he had been winning.

On top of his other successes, Luke gained top-three finishes at Buckmore Park, Kent and Sandown Park as he competed in one-off races throughout the country.

He is now racing with a professional karting team, Protrain, and in his third race at national level won the best rookie trophy in the English National Open Championship.

He is now regularly posting top-three positions against other older racers in his class and against professional teams.

Luke was full of thanks for all the individuals that have supported him over the years. If you would like to support Luke in his quest to advance further in motorsport please contact Paul Richardson 01442 300282.
