Nick Hamilton is following in the footsteps of his big brother. You may have heard of him... Lewis Hamilton, the 26-year-old Formula One pilot who has already earned the title of world champion and is continually adding to his career wins count.

Nineteen-year-old Nick has signed a deal with Total Control Racing and will run in the UK Renault Clio Cup. He recently received his National B Race License and has spent time testing with a 2010 Clio Cup car.

Nick will certainly have pressure to peform because of his already-accomplished brother, but he will also be monitored closely because he has cerebral palsy. Hamilton states that he has watched his brother compete and achieve so much early on, which serves as an inspiration for him. He also hopes he can inspire others who face various challenges in their lives.

      take it easy NighFlight, you need to accept that there are still not-so mentally fit people around us... but they look entirely normal outside.
      anyway, its good for the hamiltons.. it shows that no challenges in life can stop one to do what they love or like. hope this would be an inspiring case for others..

        @NightFlight

        I was referring to hashiru's comment, not Nick Hamilton. I have a friend with palsy, so I do know the difference, and was offended by his attempt at humor.

        @ Benfolio

        My comment wasn't directed at you, it was directed at hashiryu. Our coments were posted nearly on top of eachother so I didn't have a @ hashiryu as the heading.

        My friends brother has palsy as well, and I don't think it is funny either. People don't understand that their motor functions are what are inhibited, not their brain functions. My friends brother has his Master's degree and is smarter than most people I know.

        @Benfolio, I'm pretty sure NightFlight was referring to hashiryu, not you..

      This is fantastic news! I am really keen to get in touch with Nick with regards to an exciting opportunity with Footsteps Foundation (registered charity number 1123440), a small national charity supporting children with cerebral palsy. If you see this Nick or if anyone can put me in touch with him, it would be very much appreciated. Please email clare@footstepsfoundation.com Thank you!
