Talented Wood Green teenager Brandon Abraham took top honours and booked himself a place in the grand finals with a lights to flag victory, after taking pole position in qualifying in The Logitech McLaren G Challenge regional final.
Abraham swapped his car for his gaming chair as he competed in the event after taking up virtual racing during the Covid-19 lockdown.
The race was held, ironically enough, on the virtual Silverstone track, where the former Highgate Wood School student had a recent accident last weekend.
The youngster will now head to the grand final as a potential favourite for the title after his performance was described as ‘bullet-proof’ by commentators during the race.
The event was streamed live with an audience of over 18,000 viewers and is one of the most important online racing events of the year.
