Year-seven Mildenhall College Academy student Kara Quinn took part in the first round in Scotland and the second in Wroxton, Oxfordshire.

The event was solely girls racing against other girls and they come from all over the country to compete.

After the two rounds Kara, from Beck Row, finished third overall in the Sw85 class (85cc Motocross bike.)

In a support race for boys at the same event, her brother Kian – who is in year-nine – came first on a Bw85!

Kian has been riding for two-and-a-half years and Kara for two years. They practise every weekend and extra days during the holidays.

Kian watched motocross and asked his parents if he could have a go, so they bought him a bike. Kara watched Kian and decided that she too would like to try it.
