Cheshire School Wins 2011 British Karting Championship
Max McGuire (17), Alex Wilson (14) and Zubair Hoque (14) from the Altrincham Grammar School for Boys (AGSB) in Bowdon, Cheshire surpassed the competition from over 30 rival schools and colleges and took the Go Motorsport supported by BSKC title at the series finale, which was held at Daytona Millton Keynes.
“It’s been a fantastic day. We didn’t get off to the best of starts, but we pulled it back at the end with some strong performances. The BSKC is an absolutely brilliant championship. It’s great fun, it’s competitive and it’s extremely cost-effective. I know several people who started off karting in this championship and are now looking to start racing professionally,” said Max McGuire, driver and team captain of Altrincham Grammar School.
The winners will receive a VIP factory tour of Red Bull Racing's state-of-the-art Milton Keynes facility, where Vettel-s F1 car is brought to life, as well as a day of professional driver tuition in Arden Motorsport's racing simulator.
“I’m really pleased for Max, Alex and Zubair because they’ve worked hard for this and they were up against some very tough opposition. What I particularly like about the BSKC is that it’s a departure from the kind of sports that schools traditionally take part in,” said Eddie Hall, Deputy Head at Altrincham Grammar School.
