Clydebank racer Zac Drummond secured a top 10 finish in his debut season in the British Kart Championships last weekend with an impressive showing at the season finale.

Fresh from clinching his first podium of the season back in September in Kimbolton, the Goldenhill Primary youngster became the youngest driver in the season-ending top 10.

The British Kart Championships is the premier UK karting title and has produced a number of senior champions over the years, including 2009 Formula One champion Jenson Button.

Lining up at the final event of the 2019 season in the TKM Honda Cadet category, Zac was flying through the heats at Whilton Mill race track with a with a joint first place in the first warm up and a third place in his first heat.

With just a few points between him and his closest rivals, the Clydebank star knew a spot in the overall top 10 was well within his grasp going into final one.

And with the race beginning to step up in the latter stages, Zac showed great maturity to keep risks to a minimum to cross the line in sixth and set himself up well for the second final of the weekend.

Following some clever driving earlier in the day, final two was a much more scrappy affair with Zac finding himself off the track on a number of occasions throughout the race.

The 10-year-old once again kept his nerve and fought back up to ninth place to finish ahead of his closest rivals and secure a well-deserved eighth place in the overall championship standings.

Improving through his first season at this level, Zac’s final standing also guarantees him qualification into next season’s championship.
