Seth, aged 13, started racing following a holiday karting experience in Menorca 2007 which led to joining Buckmore’s Junior Club for the winter

series in 2007 also signing up for the 2008
summer series which yielded some good
fun racing and some good results.
For his 12th birthday in March 2008 Seth was given
a TonyKart Minimax with which came much head scratching and chin rubbing trying to get the
right setup at each circuit until, in July 2008
at Rye House we ran into to Matt Napolitano
of Wavertree Motorsport, who kindly gHi and welcome to my site.

Seth James_3310_(web)Hello, welcome to my site.

I am 15 and have been racing since 2008.

This year my focus was on the FKS Minimax British Karting Championship, podium wise I have achieved a win, two second places and a third, finishing fourth in the championship overall, early on in the year I had a good chance of winning the championship having won the first round at Rowrah (and would have won the second round if it were not for a mad lunge from behind…), but after Rowrah, due to ‘matters outside of my control’  we were not quite on the pace again until round 8, this combined with the odd “racing incident” meant it was not to be. As they say, that’s racing!

I have now moved up to the Junior class and am running with team mates Brett Ward and Adam Glear in our own team  - Team Three Amigos! I will spend the winter testing and am hoping my first race will be in Campillos in Spain in the new year and following that I’m very much looking forward to competing in the British Championship again next year.

On a career note my ultimate goal would of course be to secure a seat as a professional driver (in due course!), but as a backup I intend to go to university to study aerodynamic physics in the interests of becoming a Formula 1 designer.

In the meantime if there’s anyone out there who would consider sponsoring me please don’t be afraid to ask!
