Junior Max contender Leon Henderson has been named as the Wera Tools Driver of the Day from last weekend’s British Kart Championships encounter at Warden Law [18 -19 September].
Henderson was nominated by the panel of judges along with a shortlist of five other drivers thanks to their on-track performance, sporting act or overcoming adversity. Each driver was in line to scoop a special Wera Tools Trophy and a comprehensive Wera Tools kart toolkit worth £2,500, whilst Motorsport UK will supplement the prize with a free test day at a BKC venue of their choice in 2021 or 2022.
The Strawberry Racing driver won both heats at Warden Law, backed up by 3rd in the pre-final and subsequently went on to take his maiden final win.
“I am really happy to be voted as driver of the day because the British Kart Championship is one of the most competitive championships in karting and to be nominated as driver of the day is just amazing” said Henderson.
“I am looking forward to the final round at PFI, any one of the top 10 can win it so it should be exciting race to end the championship.”
The award continues to be up for grabs throughout the season with the next round heading to the popular PFi Circuit in October.
