Britain’s Jake Dennis was crowned the first ever CIK-FIA Under 18’s World Karting Champion at the weekend, having fought off a field of international competitors to come out on top at Val d’Argenton in France.
A member of the Racing Steps Foundation, 15-year-old Dennis was crowned title winner after finishing eighth, following up on an opening round victory at Wackersdorf in Germany and a fifth place at Alcañiz in Spain.
“I was shouting inside my helmet as I went over the line,” said Jake, who hails from Leicestershire.
“It felt unbelievable to become the World Champion and it’s definitely my biggest karting achievement so far.
“Along with the Racing Steps Foundation and my MSA British Junior Kart Championship title, it should move my career a good chunk forward.”
“I am delighted that we now have another British World Champion in Jake, further bolstering the UK’s position as the world leader in motorsport both on and off the track,” added Colin Hilton, Chief Executive of the MSA (Motor Sports Association).
“We have followed the progress of each British driver in these new championships with great interest and I wish them all well for the coming seasons.”
