JORDAN PAYNE: THE UNITED KINGDOM'S NATIONAL JUNIOR DRAG RACING CHAMPION
My name is Jordan Payne. I am fifteen years of age and race a Junior Dragster in the UK’s National Junior Drag Racing Championship. I am both the driver and the owner of the car, being the only junior in the country to fund my own racing, with the help of my sponsors who have been generous enough to support me with my racing.
I have now competed for two years in the national championship, with myself claiming the championship title at the end of the 2016 season, making me the UK’s current National Junior Drag Racing Champion!
Next year, as well as racing, I need to find the time to study for my GCSE exams, which I will be taking during this summer. I am looking forward to another action packed year, and to hopefully claiming myself my second championship title!
