Navestock teenager Conrad Collinson is dreaming of competing at a national level after winning his local title.

The 15-year-old finished first in the Brentwood Championship and hopes to earn enough sponsorship to compete in next year’s British Super1 Championship.

Collinson clinched the Brentwood crown after seeing off the challenge of 47 rivals over the course of 12 weeks.

The youngster led from the first round and despite missing two races was able to win by 10 points.

He was helped by qualifying on pole in six of the 12 races and recorded numerous fastest laps during the competition.

And he also went close to adding the Hoddesdon Championship to his collection.

Collinson is currently second heading into the final round of the Mini Max competition, but he will not be competing having stepped up to the Junior Rotax event before the end of the season.

The teenager also recorded several fastest laps during the competiton which lasts a lot longer than the Brentwood Championship at 11 months.

The young speedster suffered misfortune during a race when he led, before his chain broke on the final corner. If he had won that race he would be leading the standings heading into this weekend’s final round.
