LEWIS Hamilton is not the only motor racing ace to enjoy a meteoric rise to the top. Fenland has its own 'new boy' who has become British champion in only his second year of racing.
Steve Drew, of Wisbech, a business support officer with Fenland District Council, has swept the board in the 2007 Top Rod racing championships after just two years behind the wheel of the lightning-quick 1:6 scale radio-controlled racing machines.
In his first year he took third place in the European Championship.
Steve has had a long association with motor racing and was an experienced rally driver, competing in the Army Championships in his youth.

He has also spent more than 15 years working with Wisbech-born, four-time world National Hot Rod champion Barry Lee.
Steve said: "I found I did not have the time to continue travelling around the country competing in rally events, but I was still keen to be involved in racing and Top Rod racing fitted the bill perfectly.
