Quadriplegic driver makes Goodwood Festival racing debut

Former IndyCar driver Sam Schmidt was paralysed from the shoulders down in a racing accident in 2000.

Now, 21 years later, he’s making his debut at Goodwood Festival of Speed in a semi-autonomous automotive that’s managed with head actions for turns and “sip-and-puff” management for acceleration.

Mr Schmidt based and co-owns the Arrow McClaren SP, which has received 12 IndyCar races.

In 2013, he partnered with a workforce of engineers at Arrow Electronics with the objective of getting him to drive a racing automotive once more.
