Izzy Carter, 11, from Banham, has signed to race in the Ohvale UK championship once the coronavirus lockdown is over.

Now, Isle of Man TT legend Peter Hickman has shown his support for the youngster as he shared her profile across his social media.

Izzy is known as Mini Rossi because of her love for the Moto GP rider and her replica leathers and helmet that she races in.

She races on a 110cc mini-motorbike with up to 12bhp on go-karting tracks across the UK.
