The Driver

 

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

My karting began indoors at Teamsport in Leeds. I began at their karting academy and went once a fortnight. 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 – since June 2019 – I am spending the rest of this season 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, I am going to – as an asthma sufferer) run in aid of Asthma UK!   Wish me luck!
