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

Plans for 2020 have changed a bit. I’m not able to take part in the LGM as it has been cancelled but I will be doing the NKF and using the rest of the year getting around as many tracks as possible. I plan to see the Wombwell IKR through till the end of the season and focus on MSUK for 2021.

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

In July 2019, I got my own kart, an IAME Cadet on a Synergy chassis. I spent 2019, learning about by kart and doing some practice sessions and the last half of the Wombwell IKR – where I placed 4th in the Summer series and 3rd in the Winter series.

I started 2020 how I mean to go on, by becoming a Motorsport UK Licence holder which means I can now take part in MSUK races. The MSUK races are the toughest grids and the very best drivers in the UK! I am really looking forward to learning from the best out there!

In 2021 , if we can raise enough money –  am hoping to compete in the British Kart Championships, but to do this I also need to upgrade my licence with 11 signatures from MSUK races – as of February 2020 I have ONE – so lots of racing to do to before worrying about the money!

As always, as an asthma sufferer I am going to be raising awareness of Asthma UK Wish me luck!
