SOLIHULL kart racer Craig Johnson, the current holder of Rissington Kart Club’s Nigel Mansell Trophy for the most promising driver, got his season off to a start at Whilton Mill last weekend.
Starting third on the grid, he was tapped into a spin at the first corner and fell back to 26th.
But a dazzling drive saw him power back through the field again to finish fifth.
Craig, 15, a student of Alderbrook School, is looking for potential sponsors for the 2011 season.
