A 12 year-old boy who recently became the best indoor kart racer in London is dreaming of Formula 1.

Wood Green lad Brandon Abraham beat out competition from adults and juniors alike to win the Team Sport London League.

Such was his dominance during the competition that on the last race he lapped the second place driver five times.

He has now begun competing in outdoor karting, already winning several novice trophies, and aims to follow the footsteps of his hero Lewis Hamilton to F1 glory.

His father Paul Abraham said: “It’s incredible how focused he is when it comes to racing and how well he has taken to it for his age.

“You get a lot of parents who say their child is good at something when they aren’t but even if he wasn’t my son I’d be saying the same thing: he can make Formula 1.”

Mr Abraham took his son karting in Southend for his tenth birthday on the off chance it would be something Brandon would take up as a hobby.

The 12 year-old Highgate Wood pupil is now competing in both indoor and outdoor karting, picking up trophies and accolades regularly.

His father said: “He’s really into it, really focussed and absolutely determined to be the best driver he can, it’s amazing.

“As a father It’s fantastic, I’m immensely proud watching him race. It’s also great because these days kids have to get on that train marked ‘future career’ so early, it’s nice to see him take to something that is absolutely his calling.”

Having moved on to outdoor karting the Abrahams are travelling around the country so young Brandon can compete with his next race at the historic Whilton Mill race track in Daventry tomorrow.
