GEORGE Hopper is targeting success in the British Youth Grass Track Championship next month after a successful season on and off the track.

The youngster is currently topping the Dirt Track Riders Association (DTRA) National Championships Youth Junior division after three rounds, with wins in Leicester and Scunthorpe.

The Eddie Wright Raceway in North Lincolnshire also proved a happy hunting ground for Hopper when asked to ride in the DTRA's mini bike team class, where he claimed two heat wins and helped his team to victory.

Earlier in the season, the Newhall Community School pupil took the title at the Wainfleet Junior Poacher competition.

Off the track, Hopper has a new sponsor in Matt Smith, a Swadlincote Kawasaki dealer (pictured).

Anyone interested in sponsoring Hopper next season can contact mum Emma at emmahopper78@gmail.com
