Project Cars Inspired to Drive The Nicolas Hamilton Story

Slightly Mad Studios, makers of the sim racing title Project Cars, have produced a short film entitled Inspired To Drive, which is actually based on the inspirational life story of Nicolas Hamilton. In case you were not aware, Nicolas is the younger brother of current and triple world Formula One champion, Lewis Hamilton. He also happens to be a sim racer and real life race car driver as well!

“Inspired to Drive – The Nicolas Hamilton Story” is certainly good viewing and at the same time uplifting, demonstrating that people born with physical and mental handicaps can overcome the odds and succeed in achieving their dreams!

Slightly Mad Studio’s YouTube description of ‘Inspired To Drive”

”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 motor-sport.

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 NicolasHamilton is #DriventoInspire us all.”
