This Funzing Experience:
What sort of character does it take to become a successful racing driver, despite being born with Cerebral Palsy? Join us for a very special Funzing Talk with British Touring car driver Nicolas Hamilton (brother of FQ Driver Lewis) for an inspirational talk, on how to succeed in the face of adversity.

Nicolas continuously strives to overcome the pain, strains and endless struggles that are a result of his disability. He is young, hungry, determined and believes that his disability will not prevent him from achieving his life long dream of becoming a successful racing driver.

When Nicolas was only 18 months old his parents were told that he would never walk and that his eyesight was extremely poor and would deteriorate as he got older, but the determination of the person that is Nicolas has proved the doctors wrong. In 2015, Nicolas became the first disabled athlete to compete in the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) and hopes to inspire both disabled and able-bodied individuals worldwide to show that pushing to better yourself regardless of your life situation or industry is possible.
