An 11-year-old from Roydon has become one of the first girls to be crowned the winner of the East Anglian Ninja Karts Championship.

Rosie Taber fought her way over 15 laps to take home the silverware during the championship race at Swaffham Racecourse on Saturday, April 23.

One of just two girls in her formula, the Roydon Primary School pupil follows in the footsteps of her father, Gavin, and grandfather, Adrian – both of whom enjoyed successful circuit racing careers.

Speaking about her win, Rosie said: “At the start, I was quite nervous, but once I got going, I built myself up to be one of the fastest.”

Her mother, Becky, 39, who works at Roydon Service Station, added: “She’s a brave, determined and very stubborn girl.

“Some moments, you just want to put you hands over your eyes, but it was quite an emotional feeling watching your child accomplish that.”
