Twelve-year-old South Luffenham kart driver Teddy Wilson extended his lead in the national 2014 Little Green Man Series Championship at the weekend.

Despite the appalling weather conditions at Glan-y-Gors Kart Circuit in Wales, another impressive performance against 65 of the country’s best cadet drivers earned him second place on the podium.

Last month Teddy won the opening round of the Championship at PF International circuit, near Grantham, in a race that the organisers described as ‘epic’ and ‘one of the best cadet duels in recent times.’

This was followed by a nail-biting Round 2 at Larkhall, Scotland, in which Teddy narrowly missed out on victory in a last-lap battle and was forced to settle for third place. Driving for Fusion Motorsport, he is the only driver in the Championship to have had a podium position in every round.

Uppingham Community College pupil Teddy said: “I was delighted to be on the podium again in the 2014 LGM Series Championship. With five more rounds to go, there’s still a long way to go.”
