To support Ben was his mum (Bev), his brothers Archie (4) and Danny (3), his nan and granddad and his friend Tyler.

Ben’s mum Bev used to race for Spalding Autograss and won Ladies Class 12 championship for several years.

Ben wanted to say thankyou to his granddad for all the work he has put into his kart, including work like changing his sprockets.
