Highly-rated motorsport prospect George Russell is the special guest on the 61st West Norfolk Sports Podcast.

The 17-year-old – tipped to be a future Formula One driver – joins Gavin Caney to give the Eastern Daily Press the lowdown on the early stages of what is expected to be a hugely successful career.

Our sports reporter explores Russell's days in karting, a memorable 2014, and how the King's Lynn-based ace feels ahead of making his FIA Formula Three European Championship bow this weekend.

As always, if the above is not enough to tempt you to tune into our latest offering, there's all of the week's other goings on in the popular Gone in 60 Seconds news segment.
