Young motor racing prospect Tom Wood has lead the way as Trent College’s most talented sports stars have got the new school year off to an impressive start.
The start of the season saw 90 drivers entered in the LGM Championship, and Tom was on the podium seven times in the eight LGM rounds.
Despite technical issues putting paid to his chances of winning the title, he also finished fourth overall in the Super One British Championship. The MSA Super One British Kart Championship has been the nursery of many top Britisg drivers, including homegrown Formula One stars Jenson Button, Lewis Hamilton and David Coulthard.
Meanwhile 10 of Trent College’s top hockey players (male and female) will also have the chance to make their mark when they take part in England Hockey High Performance Assessment Camps (HiPAC) or Futures Cup during half-term. HiPAC and the Futures Cup are part of the selection for England National Age-Group squads.
And Amalia Morris and Eleanor Smith have been selected for the Derbyshire Netball Satellite programme, which is the first step on the England Netball performance pathway. They will represent the County in an inter-county tournament in spring.
Tom, who turns 13 next month, has won the 2014 National Little Green Man (LGM) Championship title, driving the race of his life to win the final round at the PF International Kart Circuit, Grantham, earlier this month.
