They have been involved in powerboat racing for a number of years.

And a brother and sister duo could soon be seeing a familiar face on Oulton Broad – with a member of the J and J racing team hopeful of joining them on the water in the not too distant future.

Jessica and Joseph Haylock both race in the GT15 class, and they are part of the J and J racing team at Oulton Broad.

With sister Abbie Haylock patiently waiting in the wings, eight-year-old Abbie said: “My brother started racing at the age of nine and my sister at 10 – they are 11 and 14 now. When I am nine I hope to start racing as well.

“My dad Jon and grandad Paul both help getting the boats ready in the pits. Mum supports the whole team.”

Abbie Haylock added: “We race every Thursday and some weekends and sometimes we travel around the country to national events.”
