    Exclamation Watch Now: Inspired to Drive - The Nicolas Hamilton Story

    Experience the inspirational story of a race car driverís battle to beat cerebral palsy and his quest to achieve his racing dreams in Inspired to Drive - The Nicolas Hamilton Story.

    Inspired to Drive - The Nicolas Hamilton Story is the true story of how a kid born with cerebral palsy went on to swap his wheelchair for the seat of a race car in the cut-throat world of motorsport.

    Nicolas Hamilton always aspired to follow his brother, 3-time Formula One World Champion, Lewis Hamilton, into motor racing. Born with a disability that severely impacted his ability to even walk, much less control a car on the limit, Nicolas had to overcome incredible odds. He used those obstacles to inspire himself. Training for years on a simulator, he allowed nothing to stand in the way of achieving his dream. His remarkable success is why Nicolas Hamilton is #DrivenToInSpire us all.

    Make sure to watch the film by following the link below and please help spread the word on Nic's inspiring story by liking & sharing the film among your friends!

    Just watched it. Absolutely fantastic video and a lovely insight into Nic's background too. Top stuff from all involved .

    EDIT : Also, I've mentioned it before and I'm sure that anybody that has met Nic will say the same, but what comes across in the video is the person you meet in real life. He's a very down to earth, humble, honest and thoroughly nice bloke. I might only have spent a few minutes chatting to him at the Autosport Show back in January but it was the way he approached a young girl who also has cerebral palsy that showed me what a truly nice guy Nic is.

    Genuine, sincere and from the heart; everything I've come to expect from Project Cars and the people who helped to create it.
