IAME Cadet contender Zac Drummond has been named as the Wera Tools Driver of the Day from last weekend’s Larkhall Circuit meeting near Glasgow in Scotland (17-18 July).
Drummond 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 12-year old Fusion Motorsport enjoyed success at his local circuit, which inspired the panel to nominate the Scot. A photo finish on Saturdays Final saw him pull off an amazing overtake to finish 0.004 in front of second place across the line, smashing the Saturday and fighting hard with championship contender Lewis Wherrell on Sunday to finish on the top spot again with a big smile on his face.
“I was delighted to be nominated for Driver of the Day but to win it is amazing, especially against such strong candidates! I am so happy” said Drummond.
“Massive thank you to everyone who voted for me. Thanks also to Wera Tools and the British Kart Championships, can’t wait to get my trophy and so happy to be able to get my Dad some new tools.”
The award continues to be up for grabs throughout the season and the next round sees the series head to Cumbria and the popular Rowrah circuit in August.
