MOTOR SPORT: Thornham’s Piers Henderson is moving up a gear.

The 11-year-old is now racing in the Mini Max class with Vital Motorsport after a successful time in cadet kart racing.

Following his first two weekends with Vital, the team manager said: “Piers took the Mini Max win by five seconds at Kimbolton after missing testing. It was a fantastic effort.

“This follows up a strong fifth place at the PF International in a bumper grid of the UK’s best Mini Max drivers.”

Henderson is looking forward to the challenge and any business wanting to support him, can contact Steven Henderson, 01485 512220, to discuss sponsorship opportunities.
