Carluke’s Luca Molinaro is karting Rookie of the Year

YOUNG karting sensation Luca Molinaro is hoping to follow in the footsteps of heroes Ayrton Senna and Lewis Hamilton and become a motorsport superstar.

Nine-year-old Luca, who lives in Carluke, only began racing last year but was rewarded with the honour of being named Rookie of the Year for an outstanding season which included a big win in Wigan and finishing third in the Scottish Championships.

Dad Cosmo said: “It was a great first year for Luca. He won seven or eight races and was unlucky in the Scottish Championship.”
