NINE-year-old Connor Kearney could be the next Lewis Hamilton in the making.

The Stanton Harcourt Primary School pupil is celebrating beating 21 others to be crowned winner of the Llandow Kart Club Celtic Challenge in Wales on Sunday.

The Formula 1 fan, from Farmoor, said: “I am so happy and I just cannot stop smiling.”

His garage owner dad Brian, 36, said: “It is great. It is actually a really good day after a really hard season.

“We are really proud of him.”

Connor can display the ‘CC’ plate – awarded for being in the Celtic Challenge – on his kart for a year because of his win.
