The E1 series, set to be the world’s first and only electric powerboat racing series, held its first virtual online competition to find the UK’s fastest pilot.
London teenager Lewis Appiagyei beat all others to be crowned the inaugural champion of the E1 series’ fastest lap competition.
He set a time well over 3 seconds to his nearest rival in just his second attempt. To be fair, Lewis set his first Guinness World Record at the tender age of 10 and made history by being the youngest person in the world to set a motor racing simulator record.
The 17-year-old champion racing driver Lewis Appiagyei from Camden is steadily making a name for himself as a global teen star. He featured in Forbes magazine America and has appeared in a BBC news feature about his racing.
Lewis, who was named the youngest on the prestigious Forbes ’30 under 30’ Africa list last year, aims to become a Formula 1 champion.
At 17 he is already an ambassador for the biggest youth sporting event in Europe, the London Youth Games. Lewis is very impressed by the fast pace of the E1 RaceBird with its futuristic striking looks, so much so that he would even consider doing a stint in the series in 2023.
If the E1 series can attract the likes of Lewis Appiagyei right off the bat, then they’re on to something good.
Teenagers like Lewis often command a lot of power through their notoriety. Lewis’ almost iconic status comes with legions of Fortnight playing, Gran Turismo racing fans who are as hard to please as the teenage racing protégé himself, but will follow this talented sportsman because he is one of them.
