CA Group are very proud of their continued sponsorship of young kart driver James Lowther who is, for the second year running, competing in the British Karting Championship. With a 9th place finish in last year’s standings in the Junior Rotax category, James is setting his sights much higher this season after joining the current British Championship winning team, Coles Racing, as their number one driver in the Junior class.
Since joining in January 2018 he has competed across the country, winning the Winter Cup at Trent Valley Kart Club which earned him a free entry into the British Kartmaster Grand Prix in August and he is currently leading the summer Championship at Trent Valley Kart Club (PFI Circuit) as well as leading the Whilton Mill Kart Club summer championship both of which are considered as the most competitive championships in the country.
The first round of the British Karting Championship at the PFI circuit in Lincolnshire on 7th and 8th April. James during timed qualifying, qualified in pole position for the first two heats leaving him with two 2nd second places and putting him in pole position for the first of the 2 finals on Sunday. Problems with the fuel system during the first final on Sunday dropped him back to 3rd with him eventually finishing 2nd. James started the second (main) final from second position and quickly took the lead on lap one which he held onto to cross the line in first position. James is now leading the British Karting Championship with the second round in Daventry at the end of April.
