Ken Blanchflower, from Billinghay near Sleaford, regularly races at Woodthorpe near Alford.

For the second successive year, he's become senior open champion, beating opponents in their twenties.

Ken says karting fans are amazed.

I was walking past the podium and the guy who organises the trophies said, "There's our 2019 senior open chamion." I was just walking by.
