Charlie Clarke

CHARLIE Clarke is forging ahead, creating a name for himself in the world of hovercraft racing.

Aged just 12, Charlie competes in the National Hovercraft Championships run by the Hovercraft Club of Great Britain (HCGB).

The Year 8 is in his first full season of the sport and is currently sitting second in the Junior Colt Formula with just one round of the championship left to go.

The HCGB created the Junior Colt Formula just this season to remove the younger drivers from the mainstream Juniors who drive a hovercraft shared with their parents.

Competing solo appears not to phase Charlie, who uses the Number 95 – Lightning McQueen!
