LITTLE Sutton kart racer Chris Taylor leads the Hooton Park Formula Blue championship with three rounds to go.
The 2007 champion was unable to test on Saturday as he was attending his sister Laura’s wedding, then he suffered an engine failure in heat three on Sunday.
But Taylor managed to fight his way back through the field in the final race to take a third spot.
Taylor has secured support from Castrol and the Italian kart manufacturer EKS are sending him an 09 chassis to spend the winter testing and developing for them, before going on sale in the UK.
Taylor’s next meeting at Hooton Park is on Sunday, September 14 – his 25th birthday – and he will race with the number 25 on his kart.
