ROBBIE Gallier of Lympsham, at only 11, is proving he has real potential in motor racing, if his stunning form is anything to go by. Robbie was visiting the Forest Edge circuit, near Andover, for only the third time since starting Karting in May last year. This time it was for the second round of the National Kart Racing Association Championship which Robbie is leading after the first round. With a lot of the top Cadet drivers (8 to 13 year olds) from all over the country this was a real test for Robbie with 38 Cadets at the meeting. Competing in the hotly contested Honda Class, Robbie revelling in the high level of competition was to win all three heats in the Honda class and taking fastest lap in two heats which meant he not only qualified first Honda, he also qualified fourth out of the 38 other competitors from all the other classes.Going in to the final, Robbie was determined to try and take the win, this was not easy, but he went for it in the first lap and briefly held the lead for a lap and a half of the eight-lap final, on the straights with the outright speed of the Comer cadets being superior, Robbie had to concede and finished a tremendous fourth overall and in doing so taking the Honda class by over half a second. Robbie now leads the NKRA championship by a healthy margin and is next off to Clay Pigeon over the Easter weekend where he is competing in the championship, which he is currently leadingSupport continues from Prokart Eng, PIAA, Talon, Lucas Oils, South West Karting and WSM Fasteners.
