He came eighth in his first Stock Hatch meeting at Donnington Park and 17th at Silverstone at his second.

Father Paul Tibbs said: "Andrew's done extremely well. It's a big step up and we thought he would take time to get the feel of the more powerful cars so we weren't expecting results like this.

"I'm looking forward to seeing how he does in his first full season in Stock hatch next year."

Six other drivers from the Wisbech area competed in the final.

Joe McMillan came sixth in 15:34.41, Wayne Harris finished seventh on 15:36.57, Robbie Boon was 14th in 15:46.45, Ryan Bensley came 16th in 15:49.46, Shaun Hagen came 27th in 16:09.11 and Terry Roughton failed to finish.

Two heat meetings took place early in the day.

The second saw drivers from the Wisbech area take the top five spots, with Bensley first, Tibbs second, McMillan third, Hagen fourth and Harris fifth.

The first heat race saw Boon finish third.

The next meeting will be at Snetterton on September 28.
