Lightning strides to bring a replica cartoon car back to life after being destroyed by fire will never be forgotton. 

Jake Winkett’s name has now been added to the Lightning McQueen Rust-eze car, from Disney’s Cars film, which was rebuilt with the help of a fundraiser organised by the seven-year-old. 
His mum, Julie, said he saw his name on the car for the first time when the Rust-eze and the Piston Cup visited a summer fair fundraiser at St Paul’s School in Spalding, raising £100 for the Macy’s Memory charity. 
Julie said: “He kept saying ‘Mum, look at my name’ and stayed with it the whole time.”
