Young racing driver Harry King has added to his successful season after coming first and third in two races at Oulton Park in Cheshire.
The 15-year-old driver from Holyport crossed the line in third place in the first race and first place in the second race which took place on Saturday, June 4.
Harry competes in the Ginetta Junior Championship, a junior series which acts as the first step on the motorsport ladder for 14 to 17-year-old racing drivers.
Extending his number of podium finishes to four this season, Harry is now just 11 points away from placing among the top 10 racers in the championship.
Harry said: “To come away from it with two podiums and my first rookie win is fantastic and more than I was hoping for.
“I was still on the pace of the front-runners and am going home with more silverware.
“Getting the first win under my belt is another boost to my confidence and hopefully I can keep my current run going.”
He is now training for his next race at Croft Circuit, Darlington, which will take place on Saturday.
