My nephew the hero

My nephew Mitchell Griffin has just won the Tasmanian karting championship for his age group. He's an superb racer, who despite his small stature for his age, has an incredible mental attitude towards racing that makes him a winner all the way to my mind, whether he comes first or last. Happily he comes first more often than last. Lewis Hamilton came up from the same route apparently, so who knows how far he could go with this.

And don't you just love his victory salute.

That's very cool. It looks like he smoked everybody in that picture.

He sure did. Starting from 10th on the starter grid. Finished in First place. Australian Karting mags have him earmarked as a future national champion.
