Anton Spires has been crowned Michelin Clio Cup Series Roadcar champion after dominant back-to-back wins at Snetterton.

Spires celebrated his 22nd birthday on Sunday, and he got the perfect present by being crowned champion with two races still remaining.

Qualifying a second faster then everyone else, Spires started Race 1 slowly and dropped to third, before crusing back through the field to take the win.

He made no mistake in Race 2 though, winning by an incredible 26 seconds to win the championship.

Spires hopes he can step up a class to the Clio Cup Racecar series for 2015.
