Ollie Poole: Record setter

Ollie and his father Ross came down to Teesside to compete in the sprint championship on Sunday 25th February where Ollie won all his heats and the final setting a new lap record in the process. Ollie was the youngest on the grid and had never been at the track before so this was a great achievement for him.





Earlier in the year we introduced a new member to Acklam Car Centre's star lineup of exceptionally talented athletes and sports people such as Richard Kilty and Simon Vallily. Ollie is the son of very loyal, and long standing Acklam Car Centre customer and friend Ross Poole. Since then Ollie has been putting in some exceptional hard work on and off the track preparing for the challenges and excitement that lay ahead.

As the title says, Ollie absolutely smashed all of his heats at the sprint championship held here in Teesside on the 25th February 2018. He even went on to set a new lap record in the process, an achievement every father, and Ollie himself should be proud of.

It is of no coincidence or luck that Ollie has achieved what he has to date, prior to this fantastic performance Ollie had spent some time out in spain where him and Ross had plenty of time to practice and perfect technique. Ross is currently in the process of setting up a Facebook page and website where you will be able to keep up to date on a day by day basis of Ollie's progress. We will post this out when this is all complete!
