A YOUNG Letham karter has been picked to join the Arden Young Racing Driver Academy with a launch taking place earlier this month at Silverstone.

Sandy Mitchell (13) has been chosen to join the newly created academy which will deliver a dedicated programme designed to maximise the young drivers’ on-track and off-track potential and provide them with the necessary skills and support to help them make a successful transition from karting into single-seater racing.

The academy is a partnership between the Business of Sport, top motor sport team Arden International and sports law firm Legal 7.

Sandy said: “It’s a great opportunity and I’m really looking forward to working with Arden and the other partners involved.

“It will be exciting to see what this season brings and I hope it will help me advance in my motorsport career.”

Sandy started racing karts at the age of nine with the North of Scotland Kart Club at Golspie where he won the Honda Cadet Club Championship in his first year.

He went on to win Scottish Championships in 2010 and 2011.

Last year, Sandy was runner up in the British Honda Cadet Super One Championship and won the British Honda Cadet Open Championship.

His sponsors are Smarcomm and SGM Distribution.
