Teenager Kyle, who went to Archbishop Sancroft High School in Harleston, had been a regular racer at the Adrian Flux Arena at King's Lynn, competing in the Junior Bangers from 2014 until December 2015 when he retired with a victory.

Ahead of the Junior Banger British Championship this evening (Saturday), drivers and spectators will take part in a minute's silence.

A spokesman for Trackstar, which runs the King's Lynn track, said everyone who knew him was "devastated" to hear of his death.

"Kyle was a popular driver with both his fellow competitors and race officials. He never 'played dirty' or raced foul of the rules and is fondly remembered as a fair but very competitive young driver who would not move over for anyone on track but would help anyone in the pits get back on track."
