 BSKC winners

It was a great Semi finals for the Campion School kart team as they raced to win coming 1st in the British schools Karting Championship Semi Final which was held at Northampton Indoor Karting on Thursday evening. Team Campion drivers consisted of Cameron Leason, Ronan McKenzie and Ben Matthews which all achieved podium finishes in all their Six races during Thursday evening racing against other Northamptonshire Schools. Team Campion have now successfully qualified for the Midland Regional Final which is to be held at Whilton Mill on Saturday 10th March. All three boys compete in major kart Championships racing outside of the BSKC with Ben competing in Junior Rotax Max, Cameron competing in the British Super One Championship, Ronan competing in the British Easykart Championship.

All three boys commented “ It was such a great experience for us all to be competing as a team for our School and hope we have done them proud getting the Campion School name out there! The karts in the BSKC are so completely different to drive compared to our race karts we compete in as they lack power so you have to keep the momentum going at all times or you just bog down which is great as it’s not all about just talent, so anyone can compete. The BSKC is a great championship for schools to compete against each other and get a chance to race, they do a great job. We just can’t wait now to get to Whilton for the Finals as it’s an outside track to which we are all use to, bring it on!”
