Tom achieves third in British Championships (and all the other competitors were adults!!)
Tom Carpenter in Year 7 achieved something quite remarkable this month, in very hard conditions with winds gusting up to 40mph Tom competed in the 2019 British Blokart Championship.Toms top speed was 48mph down the back straight before they entered the tacking section of the course, so it was pretty scary for his supporters watching him doing that speed! Tom competed in 9 races over the course of last Saturday and Sunday and got a 3rd overall in the British championships. As a school we very proud of him as he was racing against all adult competitors from as far a wide as New Zealand, America and all over Europe! Competitors travel over to compete in the British Championships, so it was a stunning achievement for Tom.
