Aaron Alexander on the podium after round four.

MOTORSPORT: King’s Lynn racer Aaron Alexander gained plaudits from his rivals after success at the weekend with the AA Racing team which headed up to the Teesside Autodrome in Middlesbrough for round four of the sprint championship.

Saturday practice saw Aaron achieving some amazing lap times, unofficially breaking the track record.

Sunday morning started with qualifying which did not work in his favour only achieving an eighth podium position (P8) for the first heat.

In the first heat Aaron managed to gain four places finishing in fourth place putting him on P4 for heat two.

Here the West Norfolk youngster drove amazingly, gaining the lead but soon lost it with a defending mistake. Soon after he regained the lead to take the win.

In Heat 3 Aaron managed to cross the line in second only a split second behind the leader, This put him on the final grid in P2.

The final was action-packed with Aaron taking the lead from the start.

The young lad had to use his head and defend right from lap one with 37 other karts behind him with two of the top drivers in the country on his rear bumper. One of them was the X30 world champion, but Alexander drove very cleanly with no mistakes and crossed the line for the chequered flag in first place with applause even from his rival teams.
