Look out Lewis Hamilton! Here comes Piers
We are proud to sponsor local kart racer Piers Henderson.
Hayes + Storr are pleased to announce that we are a proud sponsor of 9 year old kart racer Piers Henderson. Piers lives in Thornham with his family and attends Glebe House School.
Piers first started kart racing when he was 6 years old and came 3rd in his second ever race! Since then Piers has been making real waves in the karting world and has won numerous races and set many records.
At 7 years old Piers was given a new kart for his birthday and officials moved him up an age class a year early, into Cadet class (8-12 years).
Piers’ level of success at such an early age is reminiscent of that of Formula One’s 2008 World Champion Lewis Hamilton who started karting at the age of 8 years old.
We here at Hayes + Storr are confident that we may yet see Piers accomplish the same dream and look forward to the day we see Piers winning that Formula One World Championship.
Karting is an expensive business, what with the cost of karts and equipment and maintenance costs, not to mention the traveling involved. We believe that such talent should be allowed to develop and prosper, especially in a person so young as Piers with such potential. That is why becoming a sponsor for Piers was a “no-brainer” for us and we encourage other local businesses to do the same.
You can keep up to date with Piers’ progress by visiting his website, following him on Twitter and having a look at his Facebook page, links to all of which can be found on his website, a link to which we have inserted below.
We will keep you updated as to Piers’ progress, in the meantime… Watch this Space!!
