Esmee Hawkey, Year 11 Pupil, has this year been competing in the Easykart series with the final taking place at Ellough Park Race Circuit in Suffolk. Esmee comments, "I had a great time and a very successful weekend. At first it was all going wrong but I did not give up hope".
For the pre-final Esmee started 5th and made her way up to the first place within the first 5 laps. For the final the track was wet, Esmee started first and kept her position throughout the whole race and won with a lead of 8 seconds.
Esmee says, "I was over the moon, it felt amazing winning and beating all the boys".
Esmee was placed 6th overall in the championships. As the top ten are selected to go to Italy for the World Finals, Esmee will now be travelling to Italy to compete with even more boys and girls.
Tim Lello, Headmaster comments, "We are really proud of Esmee and the grit and determination she has shown with her Karting, we wish her every success in her next major competition".
