A young racing driver who has ambitions of becoming the next Lewis Hamilton has won his very first national race.

Henry Domain, seven, claimed the top prize in the tenth and final race of the Bambino Kart Club Championships held at Fullbeck in Lincolnshire.

The Toppesfield Primary School pupil finished 8.5 seconds ahead of his nearest rival and saw him win his very first national go-karting competition.

The result was Henry's best of the campaign, and followed on from his first ever podium finish back in September when he finished third in the race at Larhkall, Scotland.

Mum Abbie said: "He was absolutely brilliant and has not stopped talking about it ever since.

"We are so proud of him and everyone is just buzzing.

"It was a difficult race because of the weather but that meant it was all about the driver's skill rather than the engine."

Dad, Travis, added: "He drove his heart out.

"It was a tough weekend it was pouring all day, but he kept his head down.

"The commentator on the day actually said ‘Henry Domain, a name to remember.”

Henry, who lives with his parents in Sible Hedingham, also secured Top Rookie and Fastest Lap during the race at Fullbeck, which saw him line up as one of the youngest drivers on a 19-man grid.

The young star is now awaiting the overall results of this year's BKC Championships, with the final standings set to be announced in the coming weeks.

He will be competing in further competitions throughout the winter, before the national competition starts up again in the spring.

Mum Abbie added: "He's done really well so far, he is quite ambitious and we're all hoping it's the first of many victories."
