    Nic Hamilton is Extraordinary!

    Nic Hamilton had a dream of becoming a racing car driver when he was just 4 years old. As a child however, he was told he’d always be reliant on a wheelchair and never have his independence because of his disability. Nic was born with Spastic Diplegia, a form of cerebral palsy which affects the use of both his legs. Not one to be told what to do, Nic was determined to prove everyone wrong. He became the British champion of an online driving game, developed the strength in his legs to drive a racing car for real and was the first disabled driver to take part in the British Touring Car Championship, the pinnacle of British motorsport. As well as a driver, Nic is also a motivational speaker and wow will you feel motivated after listening to this episode!
