Few (if any?) sports give people with disabilities the opportunity to compete with the rest of the world. Yes, we’ve seen skiers, marathoners, basketball players, and a myriad others. But unfortunately for these athletes they are held to a small group that they can compete against. And in our world of arrive-and-drive track days and racing schools the overwhelming majority is standard pedal cars.

The Just Hands Racing Foundation was developed to give anyone who uses hand controls to drive (usually people in wheelchairs) the opportunity to get on to a track with an instructor!

Joining us tonight is Torsten Gross one of the founders of the Just Hands Racing Foundation who is a C6 Quadriplegic along with GTM’er Matteo Fontana, a C6/C7 Quadriplegic whom many of you have seen at the track racing his hand-controlled Audi TT 3.2 Quattro, and well as special guest Tim Horrell GT4 BMW drivers from Fast Track Racing part of the SRO GT America Series to discuss the world of racing from their unique seating positions.
