Congratulations to Jack in Year 3 who has been selected to be part of the principle race team at Veneno Racing, one of the leading National Kart racing teams in the UK, particularly for junior drivers.
Veneno Racing has a very close link to the Young British Racing Drivers association and the British Young Drivers Development programme run by the MSA (Motorsports Association). As well as this amazing achievement, Jack also passed his ARKS (Association of Racing Kart Schools) test with a 100% pass mark for his theory and a very high score on his technical race driving assessment making him one of the youngest ever drivers to obtain his National B Competition Racing Drivers License (and the youngest ever driver to be selected to be part of the Veneno Racing 1st (Principle) team).
Jack will be racing in a number of Autumn and Winter Series events in the South East and South West over the course of the rest of this year. This will all be in preparation for a full season racing with the team next year where the plan is for him to compete in the 2016 British Formula 6 Karting championships in the Honda Cadet series.
An amazing achievement - we look forward to hearing more in the future!
Great team spirit was shown throughout the day and everyone tried their very best - I was very proud of all the children. Some particularly impressive performances by individuals and well done to Maple for winning overall.
Excellent racing by the mums and dads, with additional three legged competitors! The teachers' races were closely fought, but our SCL tutors managed to sneak through!
Thank you to all the family and friends who came to support their children and to our FAB ladies who provided refreshments.
Huge thanks go to all the staff who helped in lead up to and during today, to Mr D on the mic and especially to Miss Smith for organising this year's Sports Day - no mean feat!!
