Watching The Pennies – A look at the WTP Cadet scene

George Line is 10 years old and wants to be a racing driver. He’s not aiming for F1 or any other lofty goal. Right now, he’d settle for being able to race the 60cc kart that his parents Robin and Joanne bought him as a Christmas present. The 1998 Wright chassis is almost as old as George himself.
