YOU COULD say that the Swann family are passionate about racing cars of all shapes and sizes.

Last month, Kevin was celebrating when two of his colleagues at March RC Club won national championships in radio controlled car racing.

When March racers Sam Gray, 15, and Mark Steel, 45, won the saloon stock car and ministock titles respectively, it was the first time that the club had ever won national honours.

But now, they can also boast a world champion in their ranks.

Following his domestic success, Sam Gray was crowned hot rod world junior champion, following an impressive display at the Hereford Club, last week.

Facing more than 30 of the world's best junior and senior racers, Sam qualified for the prestigious 'A' class final and not only finished third but also crossed the line as the world's best junior.
