Grasstrack champion Shanes looking up

James Shanes is hoping being crowned European Grasstrack champion will be his springboard to joining local speedway club Poole Pirates.

The 19-year-old, from Puddletown in Dorset, has been riding in the third-tier National League for Kent, but admits the chance to join his local top-flight club would be a dream come true.

BBC South Today went to meet him.
