MARCH Ministox driver Ryan Polley has achieved more titles and success.

Ryan and his team travelled four hours north to compete at Barford Raceway for the 2011 World Cup, where the best drivers from England and Scotland attended.

Ryan was the second youngest driver on this occasion. Starting in third, Ryan battled with top Scottish driver Cameron McGowen and experienced local driver Alec Cunningham. He took his lead on lap 3 where he remained for the rest of the race.

Ryan said: “I’m pleased with the result, particularly as I’ve never raced at Barford before. I never expected to achieve championship titles after just one year in the sport.

“As always, I owe thanks to my sponsors for their continuing support and even bigger thanks to my dedicated parents and sister.”

Earlier on in the season, he won the 2011 Ministox Long Track Championship at Ipswich out of a field of 20 cars by 2.5 seconds.

He was third in the East Anglian Championship, again at Ipswich after he started 12th on the grid. Ryan was in the lead from lap 10 until the last lap where he was forced wide by current points leader, Sid Madgwick and Midlands champion Tristan Claydon.
