The 13-year-old won the championship at Bradford’s Odsal stadium, in his third season in National Ministox, a full contact motorsport with competitors aged between 10 and 16 years-old.
Boden followed in the footsteps of his mum Sarah, who triumphed in 1999, also racing under number 425, as they became the first mother and son to both win the same title in the history of the sport.
Boden started the race on outside pole position and he nearly span out on the opening lap as all cars raced hard into the first corner but he held it superbly, despite being knocked off his racing line.
The leading duo traded blows before the leader went out, thus promoting Boden to second place and within striking distance of first place.
There was a stoppage with five laps to go and the grid closed up. Boden took the lead on the next bend and even with a further stoppage due to a roll, the Copley starlet took the victory.
Boden would like to thank his family and sponsors – SE Broscombe haulage contractors, Forest Hill Transport, Oilswell Lubricants, Autoworks Paint Shop, TBR Racing, Squire racing, Protech shocks, Finn Tech commercials, JN key logistics, TW Crowden and daughter, MD key transport, Fibreglass it, Contact fabrications, Holdcroft catering, Stoneywood recovery, Richard Baldwin motorhomes, TSS consumables, Micra truck bodies, Halifax commercials and Elliot Smith Ltd.
