Britain's Barry Clark claimed his first ever international championship by winning the 2007 Fiesta SportingTrophy International [FSTi] series on the Rallye Deutschland on Sunday.

Clark has done it in style as well, as he has been absolutely dominant in the FSTi series this year, extending his run of wins to a perfect five from five this weekend, to secure the title with two rounds still to go in Spain and Wales.

Of the competitors to have attempted a FSTi round this year - including the likes of Vytautas Baranauskas, Evgeniy Vertunov and Simon Hughes, who are second, third and fourth in the standings, none have been able to match Clark.

Speaking at the end of the event, the Stobart man was over the moon: "It feels fantastic to finally win the championship. It's just been a dream year and I never thought I could win every event, not with the depth on international competition on offer," he reflected.

As for the event in Germany itself, Barry had no real problems, except for a scary jump on Saturday on the first run through Arena Panzerplatte, SS10.

"Germany felt like a walk-in-the-park, we had no problems at all and I felt very comfortable in the car on all the stages. The only moment we had was the jump on Panzerplatte which nearly had us going right over the handle bars," added the Scot.

"Fortunately the Fiesta took the impact on the front and we had no problems as a result. It was an enjoyable rally and we gained lots of experience from it which is what we need to keep doing."

Clark and co-driver, Scott Martin meanwhile will now both head back to the United Kingdom with the well deserved title of '2007 Fiesta SportingTrophy International champions' in the bag.

Ford boss, Malcolm Wilson was quick to salute their achievements: "Congratulations to Barry Clark and Scott Martin on their win in the 2007 Fiesta SportingTrophy International. Barry has been a dominating force in the FSTi winning every rally but more importantly gaining valuable experience for future world events," summed-up Wilson Sr.
