Dominic Pearson

“The assessment day was great fun and the team at Motorsport UK are very friendly and welcoming. The opportunity to have a go on track and be encouraged to push the car to the limit was fantastic.”

Dean Linnell

“This was the my first time trying anything Motorsport wise, and I loved every second of it, look forward to the future events.”

Luke Delahunty

“The assessment day was the most fun I’ve had on four wheels in a long time. It was great to be around like-minded people. Disability wasn’t a factor during the day, it was all about the driving. Talk about levelling the playing field. We’re all the same behind the wheel. I’m really excited about the scholarship and can’t wait to be involved in grass roots motorsport.”

Ian Dance

“Having only recently been forced into using a wheelchair going out and about has been daunting … From the moment I arrived, my anxiety lifted as everyone who I met, be it Motorsport UK staff, car club instructors, marshals and competitors were so friendly and supportive. The day was amazing, the weather was perfect. I had great fun learning a new form of motorsport which really is available to everyone. Grassroots motorsports really is the heart of motorsport & thank you Motorsport UK for putting your trust in me for this season.”
