Champion Go Karter, Ryan Fisher, a Hanham Woods Academy Year 11 student, recently spent a fantastic weekend in Belgium to experience racing at Spa-Francorchamps karting.

Then back in the UK Ryan raced at TeamSport where he competes for the Shrekers or Wreckers team. Ryan won the autumn championship in both the Juniors and overall categories.

Racing from the age of 10, Ryan has had a passion for Karting ever since, and is so successful he has been sponsored by Tom at Matts place based in Hanham High Street.

Ryan said, “I would like to thank my family for their encouragement and support over the years I have been karting, without them I could not do this.”

Mum and dad added, “To say we are super proud of his achievements would be an understatement. We are immensely proud of Ryan’s achievements and the hard work he puts into to his karting”

Stephen OCallaghan, Principal of Hanham Wood, said, “Everyone at the Academy is incredibly proud of Ryan’s achievements. He is a great example of someone who embodies our values of Dream BIG, Work Hard, Be Kind in order to achieve success!”
