A PAIR of Ipswich twins with very different talents today have their sights set on making a name for themselves.
Daniel and Jason Nunn, 14, of Bramford Lane, Ipswich, have shown their gifts since a young age.
While Jason is musically minded, having won countless awards since the age of nine, Daniel has taken the kart racing world by storm - following the lead of Lewis Hamilton.
Daniel has several local sponsors since starting the daring sport a year ago and has won several regional competitions, including the Red Lodge endurance race in Newmarket.
He has now won first place in the 100 lap race at the Anglia Indoor Karting centre in Farthing Road, Ipswich, completing one lap of the race in a record-breaking 19.553 seconds.
Jason is more musically minded and started playing the recorder at the age of seven and now plays keyboards, guitar and saxophone up to grade four and five.

The boys, who turned 14 on July 16, have worked hard at their hobbies and hope to one day make a career out of them.
Their parents, Carl and Angie Nunn, and their older brother, Carl, 16, couldn't be prouder.
Mr Nunn said: “We're very proud of what they've achieved.
“With Jason, it all started when his granddad bought him a recorder for his birthday because he noticed he was musically talented. After that, he started to show off and he was playing two at once and through his nose and everything!
“We're not a musical family but he's definitely got something from somewhere.”
Mrs Nunn said: “They're twins but they're both very different. Jason is more laid back and Daniel is a bit of a daredevil.
“I can't watch Daniel when he's kart racing because they go so fast.”
Like Hamilton - who started in karts as a youngster - Daniel hopes to be a Formula One driver and is preparing to enter the Roadtax Club 200 Championship at Red Lodge later this year.
He said: “I love riding, the speed of it and everything is fantastic.”
Jason plans to continue taking his music exams and perform whenever he can.
