AN ALVA youngster has been unrelenting in his quest for racing dominance over the past year. 

Intrepid 10-year-old Robbie Armit capped his season with an impressive title haul - winning the European, British, East Anglian and English Championships. 

Robbie’s dad Stewart told Advertiser Sport: “[It’s] unbelievable because he won the European at the start of the year then three weeks later he went to Aldershot and won the British. 

“He’s the first Scottish boy to win the English Championship. He’s just so focused. If he wants something he just goes for it. 

“This year’s been phenomenal for him. He smiles all the time. He’s one of the happiest kids out there. He just loves it, he just enjoys the racing.”

The Ninja Kart driver is on the cusp of progressing into ministocks, for those aged between 11 and 16, and is determined to keep making his mark. 

Stewart added: “When he turns 11, he (Robbie) goes from small kart to full driving car with gears, clutch and everything.

“We are going to go back to the bottom again but he realises if he knuckles down we can get back to the top again. He knows he has to work hard. We work together all the time and go to the different tracks.”

When asked where it all started, Stewart admitted the drive and desire to race has always been in the family.

He said: “I raced when I was younger. Since the age of six months old he’s been at the track watching. He started racing at six (years old). It’s part of his blood. 

“My dad and brother raced. It’s in my side of the family. That’s all we do. We are away all the time travelling.

“It’s unbelievable. It’s surreal to know that somebody at such a young age can hold it together with all the pressure.

“There’s some 35 karts [out there] racing with him. It’s hard to explain and put into words.”

Armit Racing Team wants to thank sponsors Dechmont Forklift Trucks, Gordon Bow Engineering, Brookfield Metal Recycling, Armits Autos and Chris Hamill Signs for all of their support throughout the season.
