Karting youngsters have qualified for the national finals.

Debden Park High School will be represented by two teams at the final of the British Schools Karting Competition at Whilton Mill race track in Northampton in July.

The two teams qualified first and sixth in Sunday’s regional final where only the top seven of 25 entrants progressed.

The winning team of Jaiden Fenton,15, Ben Green, 16, and Olly Longshaw, 16, came ninth in last year’s final and are aiming to improve.

Jack Ichol, Connor Frost and Archie Lapidge, who finished sixth, will all be competing in the final for the first time.
