Ryan, who has also just secured his first sponsorship with Matt’s Place Barbers, Hanham, 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. I would also like to thank Matt’s Place for sponsoring and believing in me.”
