Ben on podium; KARTING.
The 15-year-old from Glascoed, Abergele, one of the favourites to win this year's title, got off to a flying start in last weekend's meeting at the Wigan track.
Qualifying third, Ben - now part of Strawberry Racing team - won the first heat and bagged third in the second race.
In a hard fought pre-final he finished fourth and managed to go one better in the grand final.
Ben is placed third in the championship, only 12pts behind the leader.
