Karting start Connor Hall has signed up with Bristol Sport.

BRISTOL Sport is pleased to announce the addition of 16-year-old Connor Hall to its stable of sports.

In 2013, Connor won the British and European karting titles and was ranked world number one.

Bristol Sport CEO Andrew Billingham said: “I’m delighted that Connor has joined our family of sports and look forward to a great partnership.

“As we develop our Bristol Sport Racing brand, it will really help Connor as a young driver to work with Dino Zamparelli who will be racing in the Porsche Carrera Cup UK from April. To have two talented young drivers under our banner is really exciting and we look forward to putting Bristol talent on the motor racing radar.”

Hall, who has been signed by champion team Strawberry Racing, will compete in the Senior British Karting series from April to November.

On joining Bristol Sport Connor said: “It’s great to be a part of something Bristol-based. This season my aim is to win my second British championship and try to get onto the next step which is to drive entry-level cars. To be working with Dino will be a great opportunity and inspiration to me.”

Connor has risen up through the international karting rankings since he started four years ago. His father, Craig Hall, initially took him to the indoor karting track at Avonmouth for a fun day out. Connor broke the lap record on his first few goes and hasn’t looked back since!

Studying a BTEC in business at Clevedon Community School, he will combine his studies with competing in the 2015 British Senior Rotax Championship in the Super 1 series along with the British Open. The British Open kicks off the season on April 15-17 at Rowrah, Cumbria.
