MOTOR SPORT: A swift change of tyres worked wonders for King’s Lynn race ace Aaron Alexander on Teesside at the weekend.

The King Edward VII pupil and the AA Racing team were in action in round six of the Honda Cadet Extreme 200cc Championship at the Teesside Autodrome Kart Circuit in Middlesbrough.

Alexander qualified in pole position on Sunday morning but finished heat one in third place due to a wrong tyre choice as the rain started to get heavier.

But nobody could beat the young star in heats two and three when he had the right
set-up for the wet conditions.

The final saw Alexander get a great start off the line, pulling away from the pack in the first lap. 

He went on to cross the finish line for the chequered flag and victory by 2.7 seconds from the second-placed driver.

This built up his championship points, keeping himself at the top of the table.

Alexander moves up classes next year to Junior Pro Karts and is looking for sponsorship.
