‘Next Usain Bolt’ Oz schoolboy to race against Top Gear sports car

Melbourne: An Australian boy, who has been touted as the next Usain Bolt, is set to race against a sports car driven by BBC show Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson, after he set one of the fastest sprint times in the world for his age.

Clarkson asked the 12-year old James Gallaugher to run against him driving a Nissan GT-R at an upcoming two-day Top Gear festival in Sydney after he saw a YouTube video showing Gallaugher running down a 20 metre gap to win a primary schools championship in less than 100 minutes.

James`s dad Steve, who played Australian Rules football for the Territory, took the video on his iPhone and posted it on YouTube.
