A team of students from Bradley Stoke Community School (BSCS) has made it through to the final of the British Schools Karting Championships (BSKC) taking place this weekend in Milton Keynes.
The team of three Year 10 boys (Sam Morgan, Liam Williams and George Malin) entered the competition back in January, when they competed in the local semi-final at Team Sport, Avonmouth.
Victory by a single point qualified them for the West England & Wales regional semi-final on 12th March at Llandow Kart Circuit, where a second place result secured them a trip to Sunday’s final.
The 2011 Championship has been contested by more than 450 teams, with a total of 1350 student drivers.
After more than 100 karting events around the country, just 33 teams have made it through the final, which is sponsored by Red Bull Racing and Arden International Motorsport.
Red Bull Racing will reward the Champions with a VIP factory tour of their Milton Keynes facility, while Arden International Motorsport have offered the overall Champions a day of driver training in their state-of-the-art simulator.
James Male, a mathematics teacher at BSCS, said:
“The BSKC has given a fantastic opportunity for the students at Bradley Stoke to shine in a sport that is not promoted within school.”
