Lucas Ellingham – known as Fenland’s answer to Lewis Hamilton - will take his place on the starting line at the Super One British Championships in Gloucestershire next week.

The series runs until September and will see the UK’s top kart racers go head-to-head at a variety of venues across the country.

The 11-year-old will hope to add another trophy to his already extensive collection, which includes the top rookie title which he claimed at last year’s Super One British Formula Honda Cadet Championship.

Lucas will go into next week’s curtain-raiser off the back of racing to first place in the Trent Valley Kart Club Championships and an impressive third-place finish at the 2016 East Anglian Trophy. He is yet to finish in a position lower than third in all of his meetings this season.

His exploits in his four-stroke Formula Honda Cadet kart have also earned him sponsorship with top racing manufacturer Zip Kart and he has also had a host of offers from other firms.
