TEENAGE racing driver Moh Ritson added to his portfolio of successes last weekend, with the Woodhouse Grove pupil scoring top-ten finishes in both of Sunday's BARC Junior Saloon Car Championship races at Silverstone.

The Leeds youngster lined up in 11th, in accordance with his championship position, after qualifying was abandoned due to Saturday's torrential rain.

Sunday proved to be dry, although drivers still found the track surface slippery off-line due to the previous day's conditions.

That did not stop Ritson from making an impressive start and, when the lights went out, he scythed through the field and up to sixth by the time cars exited the first corner.

He suffered contact at the second corner though, which spun him around to face the cars he had just overtaken. Thankfully they all missed his rotated Citroen and he was able to set off in pursuit of the pack.

Ritson passed a series of cars as he fought back, and his progress was helped as others made errors. His comeback drive was rewarded with an impressive eighth place.

After some minor repair work, Ritson lined up in eighth for race two, due to his first result. Some fast starts left him in trouble but he held off some experienced competition to hold on to a respectable 10th place.

After the event, Ritson said: "I've learnt something new at every meeting this year and this one at Silverstone was no exception.

"The conditions on Saturday were incredible. I don't think even the most experienced of competitors had seen anything like that. Then to get spun round in the first race and manage to avoid everyone was another new experience.

"I enjoyed catching up the field and overtaking, even though I did push the limits with some of the raised kerbs - so much so, I had a few two-wheel moments.

"It's weekends like this that teach you so much and I'm very pleased to come away having scored two top-ten finishes and with the car in one piece."

The season finale will take place at Oulton Park on Saturday, October 20.
