A new drag racing season got underway for Otterton drag racing youngster Baxter Williams when he travelled to Cornwall on the second weekend of February.

Baxter got his reaction times honed to an impressive four hundredths of a second and his 60ft times down to 2.3 seconds.

After some fine fettling by his father Gary, and a quick test by Rob May to confirm any issues with the bike, the fastest run of the day was done with Baxter achieving a shade over 11 seconds for the one-eighth-of-a-mile course that had been set.

Baxter is excited about the new season and next month is looking forward to Smeatharpe, near Honiton to meet up with the Straightliners crew.

Baxter and his father are keen to once again say a huge thank-you to Dan from Exmouth Motorcycles, Troy from Lets Talk mobiles, Big Paul from Sidbury and Ash from Exmouth Tyres.

Father Gary says: “We are so grateful to all the local businesses for their wonderful support. It is greatly appreciated.”
