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.
