RACING prodigy Ryan Folkes is on a fast track towards fulfilling his dream of becoming a professional on the GP circuit.

The mini-moto maestro is celebrating an outstanding track season with a first and second place finish in his two classes.

Bradwell boy Ryan won the Junior B 4.2 and finished second in the Junior Production Low Capacity Road Racing Club Series.

And the 10-year-old's achievement is all the greater for being the youngest in his division.

Woodlands Primary School pupil Ryan, who has been racing for the last two and a half years, is now aiming to move on to larger-sized GP50 bikes.

He travels as far a-field as Cumbria and Kent to compete in the series and is hoping to find a sponsor to cover some of the costs of competing on the circuit.

Dad Ivan said: “Ryan's dream is to become a professional motor-cyclist and we want to give him the best possible chance of achieving that.”
