Thanks for dropping by to visit my website, it means a lot to me. From here you can keep up to date with my progress by reading my blogs and checking out the results. 

My Mum and Dad will let you know all about the boring (but important) safety stuff, and equipment along the way as we go.

I don’t do this on my own, there is also my Mum (manager) and Dad (Mechanic), oh and my little sister Lucy (The Boss) and together we are figuring out the crazy world of karting, one session at a time!

I really look forward to sharing my journey with you!

About James

Hi, I am James. I was born in Harrogate in August 2009 and I live here with my Mum, Dad and little sister, Lucy.

I started karting in November 2018 after having problems trying to change football teams… and boy am I glad I did! I love it, and I am so very lucky that I am able to take part in it — thanks to my Mum and Dad. 

My karting began indoors at Teamsport in Leeds. I began their karting school and went once a fortnight to the karting academy. Having made my way up to advanced, I also took part in their summer series, winning a number of trophies and coming 3rd overall!

Now the proud owner of my own cadet kart, I am spending 2019 getting seat time and learning how to get the best out of my kart.

For 2020, I plan to take part in not one – but two championships! Wish me luck!
