Talented Spalding youngster Johnathan Hoggard is being tipped to have a bright future after being crowned East Anglia karting champion.

The 12-year-old never finished off the podium in the 19-race series, recording 15 victories.

In what was his first competitive year of racing, the young gun showed real karting talent – prompting prominent F1 figure, and current Sky Sports commentator, Martin Brundle to write him a letter expressing his well-wishes.
