A new initiative to help disabled drivers gain experience on track has been launched. Spinal Track is a notfor-profit organisation that aims to introduce disabled drivers to the thrills of motorsport. The organisation has been established by paralysed racer Nathalie Mcgloin and race and rally driver Andrew Bayliss. It has converted a Volkswagen Golf GTI to race-spec and has adapted it with hand controls and will use the car for experience and training days. Through sponsorship with Silverstone Circuits Ltd and corporate firms, the use of Spinal Track is free of charge to eligible parties. Team GB Wheelchair Basketball player Richard Sargent was one of the first drivers to sample the programme at Silverstone last week.
