Racing Update on our sponsored kart racer, Riley
For those of you who have been keeping tabs on how our sponsored 9 year old kart racer has been doing this year, we’re absolutely delighted to announce that Riley, has recently finished the inaugural 2023 IPKC Championship season.
The final round was held at the South Wales Karting Centre at Llandow Circuit, where he came over the line in the final in P4 after having a minor incident which took him off the circuit and cost him P3.
However, due to his consistent efforts, it means that he completes the season coming in 2nd overall in the Championship, which he and we are totally over the moon about. We’ll be putting something up when he attends the end of season ceremony to collect his trophy. Great job Riley, keep up the good work putting the hours in to keep improving!
After completing the IPKC Championship, he recently entered Round 7 of the UK IKR Championship at Shenington in Oxfordshire as a guest driver. Despite having never driven there before, he was quickly on the pace. The grid comprised of 27 racers including a number of professional teams and their drivers. It was a very close grid and Riley started the race in P15/27 and was only three hundredths of a second off starting in P5, now we reckon that’s some very close racing!
During the course of the day, he managed to get up into 8th and in the final came across the line 13th overall, which considering its a new track we think is absolutely outstanding! Well done Riley.
Riley has asked us to pass on a “mahoosive thank-you” (his words, not ours 😁 ) to his sponsors My Digital, ourselves (you’re welcome Riley), Original Race Equipment and a new sponsor – SafeRec, without all of whom this just wouldn’t be possible. ❤️
