Three students returned back to school after a long summer which saw them crowned the British Schools' Karting Champions for a third time.
Callum Brooks, 17, Iaroslav Kovalev, 17 and Ethan Brooks, 15, who represented Brentwood School, Middleton Hall Lane, won the national final at Whilton Mill in Daventry, which saw them become the first team to take the title three times in a row.
They had been the favourites to take the championship title but faced stiff competition from 26 of the best teams from around the UK.
After several races, the team’s five best races were tallied up, giving up a score of 95 out of a possible 100 points, securing them the win.
As part of their prize, they will be invited by the Williams F1 team to tour a historic collection at its factory and Ethan, who was the highest placed MSA licence holder, has also won free entry into the 2019 Ginetta Junior Scholarship.
This will give him the chance to compete for a fully funded season in the junior championship.
Proud mum Michele Brooks said: “This is a great base from which the boys can build their motorsport careers.”
