A BUNGAY boy is aiming to become British Kart champion 2010 and follow in the footsteps of his heroes, Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button.

Ronan Hirst had a successful 2009, winning the Beccles Kart Club Championship with the lap record.

The British Championship begins at Glan y Gors in Snowdonia, North Wales, over the Easter weekend.

It is followed by a further five rounds at tracks across the UK over the summer. This prestigious competition has been where the country's current F1 champions have cut their racing teeth.

Hirst is very grateful to his first local sponsor Harleston engineering, which is based at Ellough Park Industrial Estate in Beccles.

They provide a full range of engineering services and also have a trade counter selling a big range of fixings under their HE fixings trading name and have supplied Hirst with full engineering and fixing support for his British Championship season.

Hirst is now looking for six local businesses to each sponsor him for a round of the championship. This would be a modest amount to cover entry fees and tyres.
