Team BRIT, which aims to make
history by becoming the first all-disabled team to compete in the Le Mans 24
hour, is launching a campaign to encourage more disabled drivers into
The team supports people with physical and psychological challenges in accessing motorsport through its Racing Academy, and runs a competitive racing team, which has entered the Britcar Championship this year.
As part of its work to widen accessibility into the sport, the team is hosting a free online workshop for anyone interested in finding out how to enter the sport as a disabled driver.
In addition, it has created a range of informative materials on ‘the route to racing’ to help people understand the current processes involved in obtaining a race licence.
It is hoped that this information will help raise awareness of the ways in which disabled drivers can get involved with motorsport, and also identify the Team BRIT stars of the future.
The free online workshop will take place on Monday 19th April at 7pm via Zoom. Participants will hear:
- The history of Team BRIT
- Driver stories
- Information on how to obtain a race licence
- Details of the team’s world-leading hand control technology
- Information on the team’s Racing Academy and rookie development programme
Team Founder Dave Player
explains; “Our goal is to set up a sustainable ladder into motorsport for
disabled drivers, offering everything from grassroots racing opportunities, to
competitive racing at the highest level.
“We’ve built the infrastructure to support this through our Racing Academy and racing team. Now, we want more people to know about the incredible opportunities out there for disabled drivers and we want to help people understand the processes involved.
“If anyone is keen to know more, I’d encourage them to sign up to our virtual workshop for an interesting, informal introduction to our team and to learn more about the route to racing.”
