Service user Paul from the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust (BIRT) service Redford Court in Liverpool had an exhilarating experience when he went for a spin at Gwynne Speed rally school near Cirencester. He was supported by therapy assistant Mick, who organised the day out.
Paul and his family are avid motor sports fans which prompted the visit to Gwynne Speed, which is owned by a man who has an acquired brain injury himself who wanted to open the school to teach people, including those with disabilities, to rally drive. The school can adapt cars to take all kinds of physical disabilities and they can give people lessons on how to drive around their course or alternatively visitors can sit with one of the professionals and take a spin round the track as a co-driver, as Paul did.
Paul thoroughly enjoyed the trip and the following week went to watch the British Grand Prix with his family.
