This project lets people with sight loss and disabilities experience the thrill of driving

The cars are specially adapted to meet the needs of the drivers

A special event's taken place to help people with sight loss and other disabilities who have a love of motorsport to get behind the wheel of a car and have a go themselves.

It's organised by a charity that adapts cars to meet the needs of disabled drivers.

  • Watch my report below:

The two-day event, at the Llandow Circuit, was organised by charity Speed of Sight.

It's an opportunity for dozens of people who might not otherwise be able to drive to have the chance to race around the track in a vehicle that suits their needs.

Co-founder Mike Newman, who is blind, holds a host of world records for speed on land and water.

I never imagined how rewarding it was going to be. The sheer enjoyment that people get. And I didn't anticipate at the time the number of children that we'd be working with.

Whilst being very humbling, it's fantastically rewarding work!
