AFTER three years in kart racing, 2010 was James Webb’s best so far winning the MSA Mini Max 125cc title.
At the age of 11 James moved up from a cadet engine to a rotax 125cc. Being the youngest in his class training was important with the increased speed and braking control.
From the start of the year James looked strong and put in consistent finishes and some early surprising results to gain mid table position in the championship, as the year progressed this transformed into podium and race wins.
Towards the start of the summer James moved into second place in the championship and continued to push for first place, as the championship was reaching the final round points and results gave James the upper hand and he cruised through to take the championship in December.
Additionally james was selected to represent the club in the annual King of Clubs, a race to which all clubs send their top two drivers to race against each other and compete for the best club. James came in a impressive second which assisted in winning the King of Clubs title.
The presentation night was held Sedgebrook Hall in Northampton, when the chairman presented James with his championship trophy and a well deserved prestigious award of most promising driver of 2010, sought after by all drivers in the championship.
James also raced in the Rissington and Kimbolton championship finishing second in both and in all winning 22 trophies in one year.
He is grateful to Indesit Company, John Davies at Force Motorsport, DENSO Sales UK and Tom Smith of KKC for their invaluable support during 2010.
In 2011 James will remain in the same class but start testing / practising for the junior class in preparation for a possible European challenge in Euromax.
