Louth kart racer Lucas Vaus, 14, was presented with a number of awards at the 2015 Auto-sports show at the NEC in Birmingham recently.
The gongs he received included an award for finishing in ninth place overall in the series from last season as the top 10 all get a seeded number that they can use and race with the following year.
As it was his first time at entering the British Karting Championship, he finished the highest placed Rookie from a field of 69 so also walked away with this award too.
Lucas received a signed glass trophy, signed photo canvas by David Coulthard, a cheque for £100 and a brand new Rotax engine.
His prizes were presented to him in person by Caterham’s F1 driver Will Stevens.
After finishing last season with 587 points overall and becoming the leading Rookie driver, Lucas has now moved to a new class, the IAME Junior X30 series, which is very strong in Europe.
Lucas and his team are making preparations for a very busy 2015 season with a challenge for the ‘World Title’ at the world famous Le Mans kart racing circuit in France later this year, the event lasting over five days.
Lucas would like to say a special thanks to his key local sponsors for all their support and backing in the 2014 season.
They are Gary and Trevor (the directors at Ashley Ligard, Louth Tyres Services, Seymour and Castle and the Brackenborough Arms Hotel.
