Turnpike Lane’s Brandon Abraham made it through to the finals of the Junior Ginetta scholarship event at Blyton Park recently.

The Highgate Wood School pupil went up against 59 other hopefuls looking to earn a fully-funded season in the British Touring Car support series.

And despite never having driven a car before, the young karting ace showed his talent to reach the later stages.

Abraham had a session in a simulator with Bradley Smith of Mectech Motorsports and showed his fitness, determination and ability to adapt at the event when the track layout was changed.

He said: “This was a great experience and opportunity and has made me more determined than ever to achieve my dream of being a world champion.”
