Student has ‘sensational’ start to the motorsport season
Sam MacLeod – remember the name as he may one day be a familiar sight on the Grand Prix circuit.
The Perse Sixth Former had what the series organiser described as a ‘sensational’ debut leading team Fortec in the Formula Renault UK Championship a few days ago.
Sam, who aspires to a career in motorsport, qualified in pole position and finished on the podium, against a field of much more experienced drivers.
He competed in British and European KF2 Championship karting last year, having debuted in continental-level action in 2011 where he was fourth in the CIK-FIA European Championship. Prior to that, in 2010, Sam was fifth overall in the KF3 class of the UK-based Formula Kart Stars series.
