Congratulations to 14-year-old Reece Wetherick, from Totland, who at the weekend beat 75 other drivers to become the 2019 Junior Special National Champion.
The event took place at Bearley Raceway, near Yeovil, Somerset. Two heat wins and a fourth took him into the quarter finals where a second in that race, and again in the semi-final, secured his place in the final eight. Reece led from the first bend in the eight lap race to take the top step on the podium.
