Hamilton Makes Dreams Come True On Jim'll Fix It

Lewis Hamilton made a 12 year old boy's dream come true on a special remake of "Jim'll Fix It" set to be shown at Christmas. 12-year-old Mitchell Souter from Buckinghamshire, England, wrote a letter to "Jim I'll Fix It" about his hero Lewis Hamilton saying he wanted to "join his team and learn some driving skills"

After arriving at Goodwood, Mitchell said to Hamilton "So who’s driving? Me or You?" reports the Mirror.

A smiling Hamilton replied "You’re a bit young for that for now so I think I’ll take you for a spin" before spending 90 minutes lapping the track in a McLaren 12C supercar while reaching speeds of 160 mph.

On his once in a lifetime experience Mitchell said "I have had the most amazing day. Meeting Lewis Hamilton has been a dream come true and highlight of my racing
career, and I’m only 12 years old.

"I was so excited when I arrived at the race track and I did not know at that time that I was going to meet Lewis. When I did finally meet Lewis he was just a cool guy and we talked loads about racing.

"He is a top driver and a top guy. It was like having all my birthdays and Christmases all together and Lewis Hamilton was with me. I’m still smiling inside out."

The show was produced as a tribute to Sir Jimmy Savile, who died in October. It is hosted by Shane Ritchie and like the original by Sir Jimmy, involves making the dreams come through for children across the country who write in.

This show received 5000 letters and the lucky ones chosen including young racer Mitchell will be shown on Boxing Day on BBC1 at 5.40pm
