Could Netflix’s next star of Drive to Survive come from Queanbeyan?

Nine year old Lazarus Añonuevo goes to Bungendore Primary School, and is certain that one day he’ll be a Formula One driver.

Some big dreams for a dedicated kid from Wamboin. Dreams that were sparked after watching the hit Netflix Show Drive to Survive.

His idols are Lewis Hamilton and Daniel Riccardo, and Lazarus is already emulating his idols by starting in pole position at interstate competitions.

Last year Lazarus spent 45 weekends on the go-kart track and has become a well-known regular at Canberra Kart Racing Club’s Circuit.

His parents Al and Sadie bought Lazarus an electric go-cart when he was five years old, and he’s been hitting the track ever since.

There has been offers for Lazarus to race in Portugal and Dubai, and when he’s of age he’ll join the lower ranks in the Formula 4 competition, where he’ll hopefully begin his journey to a career in the big leagues.

Hit 104.7’s Wilko & Courts spoke to Lazarus about his big dreams, and his future as a star of the popular show Drive to Survive….
