Following on from the recent announcement that former British Rally champion David Higgins is to contest the Super One kart championship next year, his four year-old son, Matthew has taken to the track too.

Matthew made his karting debut at the Glan Y Gors circuit in Wales on Sunday, under the watchful supervision of his father who was also testing at the venue.

"Matthew was driving a bambino class Arrow kart," said David. "And did really well, he showed a lot of promise for the future.

"I was testing my own kart in between Matthew's runs and had a great day too, lapping the circuit much faster than I ever have before."

Matthew's debut brings the number of karters in David's household up to three as his seven year-old daughter Alicia has also taken to the track recently, and is awaiting the arrival of an Arrow cadet kart.
