BBC News published this video item, entitled “Quadriplegic driver makes racing debut – BBC News” – below is their description.
Former IndyCar driver Sam Schmidt was paralysed from the shoulders down in a racing accident in 2000.
Now, 21 years later, he is making his debut at Goodwood Festival of Speed in a semi-autonomous car that is controlled with head movements for turns and “sip-and-puff” control for acceleration.
Mr Schmidt founded and co-owns the Arrow McLaren SP, which has won 12 IndyCar races.
In 2013, he partnered with a team of engineers at Arrow Electronics with the goal of getting him to drive a racing car again.BBC News YouTube Channel
