Daniel Lloyd has seen his sporting achievements recognised by the tourism agency Welcome to Yorkshire after being invited to become a 'Patron of Yorkshire'.

The news comes just a few weeks after Lloyd was named the Porsche Carrera Cup GB Scholar 2012, meaning he will compete in the single-make series next year. The recognition means the Huddersfield racer will promote Yorkshire alongside celebrity patrons including Sir Michael Parkinson CBE, Michael Vaughan OBE and Sir Patrick Stewart OBE.

The 19 year old said: “Being invited to become a Patron of Yorkshire really is a fantastic honour, it's very humbling and means a massive amount to me. I've always been a really proud Yorkshireman but I'll be taking even more pride now in helping to promote the county through my racing. Yorkshire has so much to offer and I'll be doing my very best to get that message out there!”

Looking ahead to 2012 and a return to local track Croft, Lloyd added: “After racing in Europe this year in Volkswagen Sciroccos, I'm really looking forward to being back on British soil and especially returning to Croft as it's a great track. Next year's visit will be bigger than ever for me now I'm a Patron of Yorkshire, hopefully we'll have a strong weekend there and have plenty for local supporters to celebrate.”
