Boy racer sets new gaming world record

RECORD BREAKER: Lewis with his certificate and car

A TALENTED young racer who hopes to become Formula One champion one day is already breaking records – his latest one in the virtual world of gaming.

Prince of speed Lewis Appiagyei has been on the rise for the last four years in the karting community, proving age is no barrier to success, and the 11-year-old schoolboy has now earned a place in the Guinness Book of Records 2015 Gamer’s edition.

The child racing prodigy managed the feat by claiming a new record on Playstation game Gran Turismo. The achievement led to him collecting a Guinness Book of Records certificate.

A pupil at St Peter’s and Paul’s School in north London, Lewis holds the real-life record for the fastest lap driven in his class at Buckmore Park, and he is setting his sights on reaching the pinnacle of motor sport by establishing himself as a F1 driver, and eventually world champion like his hero Lewis Hamilton.

The ambitious racer will be signing copies of the Guinness Book of Records that feature his accomplishment at his local school and local library in Camden.

Lewis has asked any donations to be made to charities helping the Ebola virus relief effort.

He claimed any signed copies of the book will be “worth a lot of money” when he lifts the F1 world title.
