The nine-year-old who's taking the Mini Moto scene by storm

Nine-year-old Mason Foster is taking the Mini Moto world by storm. He won the British Championship at just eight years of age and is now racing in Italy on a regular basis.

The young star races regularly at Anglia Karting Centre near Swaffham and counts his Italian experience as a big contributor to his home title success.

It was only three years ago when he first took to the track - an experience he can vividly remember.

His parents only encouraged him to take up the sport to help him with socialising, it's progressed some way since then.

Mason is eligible to race again in the British Mini Motos next year. He's already attracting the attention from one of Italy's big minibike teams, Polini. It's the team where famous Moto GP rider Valentino Rossi started.
