Kimber shows karting potential

Solihull Editorial 8th Oct, 2014 Updated: 21st Oct, 2016   0

SOLIHULL schoolboy Mark Kimber has ended his season on a high by winning three out of six round of the British Kart Championship.

Despite experiencing a nasty accident and suffering a dislocated hip at the beginning of the year, Mark was determined to fight back and he also managed to win the British Grand prix along the way.

His accident back in March saw him air-lifted to hospital.

But the 12-year-old is not looking back and will be looking to move up a class next year when he is set to compete in the euro rotax challenge.

Kimber is certainly one name to keep an eye out for in the karting world in the years to come.
