Watch Deaf And Blind Drivers Go Racing In Poland

You’d think that people with severe sight or hearing impairments would be unable to enter a motorsport competition – but you’d be wrong.

An event was organized on an airport’s runway in Poland specifically designed to allow people with these disabilities to take part.

They relied on a skilled co-driver/instructor to give them tactile input to turn, accelerate or stop – no crashes were reported and if you take a look at the AFP video posted below, some of the participants actually looked fast.

Not all had the same level of impairment and while some could still see or hear to a degree, others were completely devoid of these senses and solely relied on the passenger’s directional knee prods to stay on course.

This is an inspirational event with clear lessons of social inclusion and acceptance, also showing the wide scope of motorsport and possibly still untapped potential.
