Goldenhill Primary youngster Zac Drummond secured the best result of his debut season in the British Kart Championships last weekend with a podium finish.

Up against 40 fellow cadet drivers in round nine and 10 of the Championships at Hunts Kart Racing Club in Kimbolton, Cambridge, earlier this month, the primary six pupil from Hardgate followed up a great qualifying performance, in which he finished six from 40 drivers, with excellent results in both heats.

Drummond then improved his standing in heat one to secure fourth before moving up to second in heat two to clinch a third place overall classification.

To final one and the young karter started off third on the grid before showing great composure and speed throughout to finish in third and clinch that incredible podium spot in an extremely tough field.

Sponsored by Synergy Racing Developments and RPM Racing Engines, Drummond couldn’t quite replicate that form in his second final of the weekend, starting in third on the grid before finishing in seventh.

The youngster’s fantastic performances over the weekend of racing saw him move up to eighth place in the overall British Championships standings with all left to race for in the two remaining events of the season.

Just six points away from seventh place and 30 away from securing a top five finish, Drummond will take to the grid for the final race weekend of the year next month at the Whilton Mill race track in Daventry.

Earlier in the weekend, Drummond also received some advice and words of encouragement from Formula One legend Lewis Hamilton’s dad and mentor, Anthony, and his brother, British Touring Car Championship driver Nicolas.
