Two people have won a free season’s club level motorsport with Loughborough Car Club as part of its innovative Disabled Driver Scholarship.

Marie Burnside from Wolverhampton and Peacehaven’s Billy Taylor came out on top of an assessment day aboard the club’s specially adapted Nissan Micra. Their first event is expected to be on 6 June.

Burnside said: “It was a great day, I met some lovely people who gave me good advice when driving the car, and for me to have been chosen for the scholarship feels fantastic!”

Loughborough Car Club’s Richard Egger added: “The club runs this scheme because we believe that club events such as autoSOLOs are the ideal activity for disabled drivers to start to compete on equal terms on a moderate budget. This is our tenth year and in that time we have met some seriously nice people and had a lot of fun.”
