Public Service student Kasper Dziobiak is gearing up to achieve his dreams in competing at the highest level in racing after securing sponsorship from Barnsley College.

The 16-year-old took up racing after watching Formula 1 on the television and having his first race at his local go-karting track. Kasper currently trains at Teamsport Karting, where he is finishing first in most of his practice sessions. His focus this year is to improve on his previous placing of 7th in the British Go-Karting championship and to start his journey in Formula 4.

“I feel very honoured to be sponsored by Barnsley College and fly the flag. Barnsley College will always be in my heart as the first sponsor in my career.”

Kasper secured sponsorship from Barnsley College to help fund aspects of his competition such as equipment, training and travel. As well as working hard on his studies, Kasper has given up many of his weekends to hone his driving skills on the track to prepare for competitions.

Kasper said: “My main goal for racing is to have a career in Formula 1. The hardest part of racing is the cost, I was close to quitting however my favourite driver is Lewis Hamilton and he always says ‘never give up’ so I did not.

“I feel very honoured to be sponsored by Barnsley College and fly the flag. Barnsley College will always be in my heart as the first sponsor in my career.”

Barnsley Sports Academy offers fantastic facilities and a team of expert and specialist coaches supporting talented sports performers in any discipline. Academies include Football, Golf, Rugby, Netball, Basketball, Esports, Cricket, Refereeing and an Individual Athlete Academy.
