Jenkins brothers take double victory in Stars of Tomorrow karting

Bristol brothers Scott and Sam Jenkins posted a historic double victory in Scotland this weekend, with both winning their respective classes at the prestigious Stars of Tomorrow meeting. "Like a double heart attack", said their elated father, Dave Jenkins.

First Scott took the win in Junior ICA after seizing the lead ten laps into the race, then his younger brother Sam did much the same in the Cadet class to score his first major win in karting.

Scott had been struggling with his kart's handling all day, making his win seem even sweeter. "I think the kart came on just at the right time. It's been a very difficult day for the mechanics", said the young driver. The Final started on a wet track which was drying throughout the 21-lap race, which always leads to exciting racing. Scott was lucky to stay ahead of one rival who started on slick tyres and came back from a lap down to take second.

Scott has already won major races and represented his country, but Sam is much nearer the beginning of his career. In the Cadet class for under-12s he took the lead halfway in and retained it until the chequered flag despite pressure from at least one rival.

The young racers are spending a well-earned break in Scotland in preparation for their next race on June 19th, also at Larkhall, but this time for the Super One series.
