A go-karting starlet from Wisbech has been crowned national champion.

Rihanna Regan, a pupil at Wisbech Grammar School, triumphed in the 90 CC Go-Kart British Championships on July 2.

She fought off competition from over 60 other racers to speed to success in her red and blue go-kart.

The 13-year-old was encouraged to take up the sport by her father two years ago. She then made her own go-kart and has entered into a number of competitions since.

A Wisbech Grammar School spokesman said: “She has followed her passion for the last two years and had the steely determination and commitment to compete.

“We are inspired by Rihanna and her achievements and we are very proud.

“The school encourages all its pupils to discover who they are through a range of extra-curricular activities and supports all pupils with their ambitions.”
