Gavin Mills is going for a second championship in his debut season.
The 23-year-old from Sutton St James, who began racing in motocross, is leading the Darley Moor Championship by just three points going into the final round on Sunday.
He has already won the EMRA (East Midland Racing Association) championship in the formula 125 class.
He said: “I’m still learning so I will be racing in that championship again next year.”
Mills is following in the footsteps of father Nicholas who won the national classic motorcycle racing title in 1999.
He has earned his clubman licence and lost his novice jacket this year.
