6 monate vor


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. Please subscribe HERE http://bit.ly/1rbfUog #Racing #Driving #BBCNews
