Seventeen year-old Callum Ogden triumphed at the British Open for radio controlled bangers.

The College of West Anglia student came out on top in a titanic tussle with rival Ian Rolfe at the SME Raceway in Wisbech.

Callum, who started racing three years ago, said: “It was a really hard race between us. There were only a couple of laps in it.”

A love of banger racing runs in the family, Callum says.

He said: “My dad watched banger racing in King’s Lynn. It’s cheaper racing radio controlled bangers than the real thing.

Callum will be in action at a charity race day in aid of Billy Lee at SME Raceway on June 20.
