Donington stock car driver Alfie aims to stay ahead
Alfie Holstead will start next season as the number one ‘superstar’ at the back of the grid.
The 14-year-old from Donington, who attends Thomas Cowley High School, has won big finals in the Junior Rods formula at Skegness Stadium this year.
He won the English Championship then gained the most points overall this season, which gives him the ‘silver roof’.
Alfie added the ‘gold roof’ for the highest honour.
He also helps his dad to maintain, fix and get race ready each time.
Alfie races in full contact junior bangers where he was also silver roof points champion at Skegness last year.
His car was on parade at the East of England Showground in Peterborough in February.
