Loughborough Car Club has launched the tenth edition of its innovative Disabled Driver Scholarship, which offers a free season of club level motorsport for two people.
Applications are invited from anyone aged 14 or over who can drive but needs basic hand controls. The scholarship will offer two individuals the opportunity to participate in a range of club motorsports events in the Loughborough area. Loughborough Car Club members will run a suitably adapted car, enabling the scholars to compete against local and regional drivers on a level playing field.
Ian Trott, 2011 scholar, still competes on club events. He said: “The Loughborough Car Club Disabled Drivers Scholarship is a fantastic opportunity for disabled people to compete in motorsport events in a fully adapted car – people who might well have thought that this was something they would never be able to achieve. With this opportunity, you can compete against – and beat – anyone! Apply today, you won't regret it.”
Scholarship organiser Richard Egger added: “It became apparent that the popular misconception that ‘motorsport is expensive and inaccessible’ applied to disabled drivers as much as any other individual. Driving competitively requires a large portion of mental skill and commitment and a lesser element of physical prowess, which makes it ideal for getting everybody competing on the same event on equal terms.”
For further information or to apply, contact Richard Egger on 07971 596 551 or email@example.com.
