Junior Max contender Neo Clarke has been named as the Wera Tools Driver of the Day from last weekend’s British Kart Championships encounter at Whilton Mill [28 -29 August].
Clarke 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 13 year-old Rookie scooped an impressive sixth place on the first Final of the double-header, going on to take a career-best second place on Sunday, all with a new team.
“I was delighted to have been nominated as Driver of the Day for the Whilton Mill round of the Wera Tools British Karting Championships” said Clarke.
“The competition is strong this year with so many talented drivers across all the fields and to be nominated was fantastic. Massive appreciation to Drew who has been by my side over the last 18 months coaching me and thanks to his dedication, hard work and effort over the last two weeks setting up the team Tooley Motorsport which I’m excited to be a part of.”
“Thanks to all my sponsors Connect Two, LDL Lighting, YESSS Electrical, Majas Switchgear & Independent Advice Bureau who supported me since I started. Big thanks to everyone that has voted for me and to Wera Tools and Motorsport UK for putting on such a great weekend’s racing and I’m already looking forward to the next round at Warden Law.”
The award continues to be up for grabs throughout the season and the next round heads to the northeast and the Warden Law circuit in September.
