British karting boss Ricky Flynn reckons American youngster Logan Sargeant can compete for internatonal KF honours in 2015 and match the achievements of World & European champ Enaam Ahmed. Sargeant competed in his first year of KF Junior competition this season with the Essex-based squad as an understudy to Ahmed but will now graduate to KF racing in 2015 following his TaG Jr victory at the recent Las Vegas SuperNationals.
“Enaam learnt massively in 2013 with Dan Ticktum, Lando Norris and Niko Kari all in their final junior year. But at the last race of the season in Bahrain, Enaam put it on pole for the final. That’s exactly what has happened with Logan this year. Logan is now where Enaam was 12 months ago.
“The first year jump from Cadet to KF Junior racing is big. It takes them a little while to develop and get physically strong enough. When they jump into a kart which has twice the power and twice the grip, and twice the weight, it’s a different animal for them. So they spend a few months feeling comfortable but come mid- season, they begin to get positive results with peaks and troughs. By the end of the year they become a more rounded driver, ready to take on the following season.”
