One to watch: Ollie Poole

At Acklam Car Centre we love to get actively involved with talented individuals and assisting with their development and training.

Ollie, is a talented Kart driver and is quickly making a name for himself in the junior ranks.


Name: Ollie Poole

Age: 8

Nationality: Scottish

Hometown: Berwick upon tweed Northumberland

Time karting: 18 months

Ollie started karting in 2016 at the age of 6 in his local bambino championship at Larkhall in Scotland. At the start of 2017, both Ross and Ollie made the decision to enter a national championship called the BKC (Bambino Kart Club). This allowed them to travel the country competing against the top drivers in the the U.K. The BKC is a ten round championship covering most of the top tracks throughout Scotland,England & Wales.

The championship has 38 drivers of between the ages of 6 to 8 years old.

Ollie got off to a steady start getting mid field results in the first few rounds then as his confidence grew so did his skills and speed and by round 4 Ollie was winning heats and setting new lap records in the process. His final result of 9th out of 38 drivers in his first year has given us the opportunity to move up a class and now Ollie has moved into the brand new Interkart championship for 2018.


We are extremely happy to be sponsoring Ollie & Ross and will be supporting them throughout the major tournaments they are participating in next year. 2018 is going to be a big year and we can't wait to see how he gets on. We will be posting regular updates on our news section as well as Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. Ross is currently in the process of setting up a Facebook page and website for Ollie and we will link to it once this is up and running.
