GB IndyCar rookie impresses in US

BBC Sport's Lee McKenzie catches up with 23-year-old Brit Jack Hawksworth, who has recently completed an impressive first season in the American IndyCar series.

The young driver finished 17th overall in the championship, but after a third place at the recent Houston GP Hawksworth has been tipped as one of the most exciting British prospects in motorsport.

Hawkworth, from Cullingworth, West Yorkshire, took up karting in 2004 at the age of 13, and progressed through various karting and racing categories before deciding to make the move to America at the age of 20 to pursue racing opportunities across the pond.
