AFTER a successful season, Matt Robinson will contest a SuperKarts title again next year.

The former Rudheath High School and Sir John Deane's College student placed third overall in Division One of the British Championship Super Series.

It was a position the 26-year-old clinched with three podium finishes in the final round at Donington Park.

His third, third and second placings gave him the the second highest points total for the meeting.

This was Matt's 'rookie year' at the level having moved up from F125, in which he won the English and British F125 titles in 2019 and 2020 respectively.

After leaving college, Robinson embarked on a four-year marketing management degree at Lancaster University which resulted in him gaining a first honours degree and his initial job with Deloitte London as a marketing consultant.

In April he was offered a project manager's role at Ineos Automotive who are building the INEOS Grenadier four-wheel drive vehicle which is to be launched next May.

As a consequence of that role, he now lives in Bicester but his kart team is still based in Rudheath.

His dad Graham does all the kart builds and preparation between race meetings.

Although they run under the tutelage of Redspeed International Superkart Race Team, which is based in Stockton- on -Tees, who do most of the engine rebuilds, Graham is the sole mechanic and transporter of the kart and equipment.

Matt's mum Kath and his grandad Norman accompany them all over the UK to the mainstream circuits for the racing.

Next year there is also a plan to enter the Dutch Grand Prix at Assen in August and two race meetings in France.
