Karting star Russell lifts European Championship trophy at Paris awards ceremony

KARTING star George Russell toasted his European Championship success with some of the sport’s elite drivers at a lavish ceremony in Paris.

The 13-year-old sensation, from Tydd St Giles, raced to victory in the CIK-FIA European Championship in August.

But Russell had to wait until last weekend to collect the trophy, which was presented to him at a ceremony held at the Pavillon Gabriel, which neighbours the famous Champs-�lys�es.

Russell is set to fly to Italy this weekend to be unveiled as one of the official drivers for the Intrepid Driver Program. For more information visit: www.georgerussellracing.com
