Lando Norris proved again what a huge racing career he has in front of him after signing off from the karting track as the youngest ever World Championship winner.
We have looked after the PR for the 14-year-old ADD Motorsports driver for the past two years and were delighted after he expertly took the CIK FIA KF crown at Essay in France this weekend.
And with his focus set to be firmly on cars from next season, it was the perfect way to bow out.
He said: “It was amazing and a big achievement in my last kart race. There may be the odd race after this, but I’ll be concentrating on other things next season so it’s brilliant to finish on a high.
“I haven’t had a great season in terms of winning things, so it’s made the season all the better.
The title capped a remarkable three years that has seen Lando crowned champion in the Formula Kart Stars series and runner-up in the MSA Super One British Championship in 2012, and finish first in the World Championships in Bahrain last year – as well as winning the WSK Euro Series, and crowned CIK FIA European Champion and CIK FIA Supercup Champion.
But the racer has his feet firmly on the ground and knows he can’t afford to celebrate the win just yet – with an important race this weekend in the Ginetta Junior Championship, where he currently lies third with two races left.
We’re right behind you Lando!
