A COMMITTED racing driver from Wokingham who has autism has won his second race for a team of all-disabled drivers.

19-year-old Bobby Trundley competed in round 2 of the BMW 116 Trophy competition for team BRIT, which consists of members who are injured military troops.

After a successful qualifying round as the afternoon race got underway the teenager found himself pinned to the inside through turn 1 and again through the chicane, forcing him offline and losing positions in an effort to keep free of incidents.

He soon made the places back as the grid spread, with a pitstop helping him maintain his lead for the rest of the race.

He set the fastest lap of the race and crossed the line in pole position, a huge 22 seconds ahead of the next competitor.

Mr Trundley, who was diagnosed with autism when he was four believes that he is currently living his dream.

He said: “At the moment it feels like I’m living in a dream world. I’ve karted for years and have won five titles, but my first race for Team BRIT was the first time I’ve competed in a car race, so to win both races is just incredible.

“I never thought I’d have a chance to be part of a team like this. Racing helps me manage my autism and being part of Team BRIT is changing my life.”

Bobby also won round 1 of the competition, which he completed earlier this year in April.
