JAMES TAYLOR - The Early Years
James Taylor started his racing career in 2010 at the indoor kart school Wakefield at the age of 8. He quickly progressed to outdoor circuit's and became vice champion of south Yorkshire kart club in his first year.
James went on to win the Lincolnshire kart club cadet championship in 2014 as well as having numerous podium finishes at kart clubs around the UK.
In 2015 moved into junior karts and had several strong finishes in the LGM national championships to finish 8th overall out of some 90+ drivers.
In 2016 James returned to south Yorkshire kart club and won the 2016 championship.
In 2017 competed in the junior x30 super one championship again with some strong finishes and a rookie win but disappointing overall finish due to ignition failures, bad luck and by the mid season his substantial stature a major disadvantage!
James by now had wanted to race cars for a number of years but never had the opportunity due to budget restraints, however the time felt right to compete for the Ginetta junior scholarship and to enter the 3 day competition as a complete novice and with having never driven a car before he would have to learn fast!
