A Galgate racer is hoping to celebrate turning 18 in style this weekend with a podium finish.

Liam Murphy, the youngster competitor in the BRSCC Mazda MX5 Supercup Championship at 17, competes in North Wales at the Anglesey Race Circuit.

The teenager reaches the milestone birthday on Friday and then heads to a track he enjoys having picked up two class wins last year.

In his last outing at Snetterton a fortnight ago, he finished a creditable ninth in race one after an eventful few laps saw him first helped off the track by another car when sitting third before spinning out.

In a very wet race two, Murphy made his way from ninth to eventually finish in seventh gaining valuable points in the championship where he sits in sixth overall.
