Tristan Cliffe, from Mulbarton, took his first two podium finishs of his motorsports career in the Stoneguard Monoposto 2000 championship at his debut home race at Snetterton this weekend during the final race meeting of the season.

In race one, he qualified his Reynard 883 in third but moved up to third during the race as Jeremy Timms outbraked himself going into the Esses chicane.

Race two saw Cliffe qualify in fourth position behind Timms, Jeremy Moore and champion Mark Harrison.

Despite losing a place at the start, the Norfolk racer managed to close in on Moore.

And on the final lap, Cliffe managed to haul Moore back on the straight, before passing him at the Esses to claim third.

Tony Le May ended his home victory drought in style by winning both the Super Mighty Mini races at Snetterton.
