Paralysed IndyCar Driver Can Race Again With Breath-Controlled Car

During testing in 1999, IndyCar driver, Sam Schmidt, had a crash that left him completely paralysed from the shoulders down, and was told he’d never race again.

22 years later, we caught up with the Arrow McLaren SP IndyCar team owner at Goodwood Festival of Speed to watch him drive The Hillclimb in a specially modified Corvette C8 that he controls using his breath.

Here’s Sam and the SAM Car’s incredible story.
