Tring looks to have a star in the making in the form of 11-year-old speed demon Luke Richardson.

Luke, a pupil at Saint Bartholomews School in Wigginton, put in a gutsy display to win the fifth round of the Cadet National Daytona MK InKart Championship 2013 in Milton Keynes – beating 23 qualified racing drivers around the demanding 1km track.

Starting at the back of the grid in the A final, he weaved his way through the field, repeatedly overtaking his rivals to lead the race with three laps to go.

Once in the lead, he did not let his grip go and stormed home to victory.

A delighted Luke said: “That was the best win of my life.”
