Whiz­zkid Jake leaves the ri­vals in his wake

Aldershot News & Mail - - YOUTH SPORT -

CHURCH Crookham kart­ing whiz­zkid Jake Cran­stone is cel­e­brat­ing a big tro­phy haul this month fol­low­ing a win at the For­est Edge Kart Club Honda Cadet Cham­pi­onship.

The 13-year-old fin­ished third, fourth and fifth place at the Clay Pi­geon Kart Club dou­ble race week­end in Dorch­ester, while his fin­ish last week­end at the Buck­more Park club in Kent helped se­cure his first South­ern NKRA ti­tle.

Jake has yet more chal­lenges ahead in Au­gust with the NKRA Grande Finale in Scot­land where he will com­pete against his Scot­tish coun­ter­parts as well as the next Cham­pi­onship round at For­est Edge Kart Club in An­dover.

Dad, Martin says: “Jake has had to deal with a few dis­ap­point­ments ear­lier in the year due to me­chan­i­cal prob­lems with the kart, but he didn’t ever want to give up.

“His de­ter­mi­na­tion to suc­ceed means he has over­come the chal­lenges that mo­tor­sport presents and has just got on with the race and de­liv­ered – a cabi­net of over 35 tro­phies along with this month’s im­pres­sive tro­phy haul just shows what can be achieved when ev­ery­thing goes right and the driver has a pos­i­tive men­tal at­ti­tude.

“We have been rac­ing at a lo­cal club level for just over 18 months, and the NKRA is Jake’s first Na­tional Cham­pi­onship. See­ing what he has achieved has made me so proud.”

Jake’s JMC Rac­ing team would like to thank their cur­rent spon­sors, Whizz Mar­ket­ing and TM Roof­ing & Build­ing for their val­ued and con­tin­ued sup­port but the young whiz­zkid is need­ing to se­cure fur­ther spon­sor­ship to con­tinue his rac­ing ca­reer in Min­i­max Class in 2015.

If you are in­ter­est­ed­sted in of­fer­ing some sup­port to this young tal­ented driver, please visit www.jm­crac­ing.co.uk for fur­ther con­tact in­for­ma­tion.
