Nicolas Hamilton – brief bio
Living with Cerebral Palsy, Nicolas Hamilton is a prime example of ‘you can do anything if you put your mind to it’. With motorsport in his family he has worked hard to manage his condition from being a permanent wheelchair user to walking unaided by the age of 17 and subsequently achieving success on the racetrack. Nicolas had a fantastic first year of racing, finishing midfield in the season. His second year proved a little tougher but Nicolas remains determined to achieve his dream. After proving himself to the world of motorsport in just two short years, his ambitions are set high with the desire of racing in the Deutschen Tourenwagen Masters (DTM), or similar racing series as a motivation to others that disabled life is for living.
Ann Frye, Chair of Mobility Choice, comments: “We are delighted to welcome Nicolas Hamilton to the Mobility Roadshow. His determination and achievements will be an inspiration to many young people with disabilities thinking about driving and independent mobility for the first time.”
The 2017 Mobility Roadshow: beyond independence.
