AN 11-year-old Tadley boy has been invited to the national final of Total Karting after an impressive performance in the southern championships.

Trevelyan Sansom, a Year 7 student at The Hurst School in Tadley, finished third overall in the southern championship this year with Total Karting.

As a reward, he has been invited to the national final in two weeks’ time for a drive-off to see who is the best from the north and southern championships.

The National Final is at Rye House Kart circuit in North London over the weekend of October 22 and 23.

The top 15 drivers from his cadet class in the southern championship will be battling it out with the same group from the northern championship for the top prize of being national champion.

Trevelyan had earlier won a race in the national Electric Go Kart Championship run by automotive engineers Rob Smedley.

Trevelyan made his big step into karting when his dad Kevin asked him if he would like to give it a go last year.
