2020 Season:

The 2020 Season was my second year in Iame Bambino, The season was delayed by Covid 19 and I thought my final year in Bambino was going to be cancelled, I joined my first team, Mark Baines Motorsport and had a dedicated engine builder, Force Motorsport.

I entered three main championships, the main National Championship which was ‘Super One/BKC’, then also Whilton Mill Kart Club Championship and Hooton Park Championship.

Disaster happened at Round 1 of the National Championship with a snapped throttle cable meaning a DNF in the Final at Round 1 whilst leading and 10th in the Championship, lots of hard work through the rest of the season and I was just 13 points of the lead and 3rd in the championship going into the last round. A perfect weekend and I managed to claw the points back and win the Championship.

I also managed first place in both other Championships I entered signing off from Bambino’s in style!
