Sonny Gilbertson races at Buxton Raceway
Heywood youngster Sonny Gilbertson, aged seven, made his debut at Buxton Raceway on Saturday 6 October.
Steve Hayward, from Leewood Motor Club, said: “Sonny completed all three races, a feat in itself.
“All his family were there to cheer him on.
“He was given a trophy, as were all the youngsters who raced, he hopes the first of many.
“Sonny was the only novice in the races, and he completed all the races on a very, very wet track, no mean feat.”
15 cars raced on the track for 8 laps of the 380 metre oval in identical cars. The youngsters involved were aged 7 to 11.
Sonny is sponsored by ABL Signs, Heywood; Aqua Valet and Classic Car Panels.
