22-year-old Aaron Morgan, from Basingstoke, has been racing since the age of seven. In 2006 he was involved in a motocross accident that left him paralysed from the waist down. Despite his life-changing injuries he was determined not to let his disability get in the way of his passion.
In the six years since his ten months of gruelling rehabilitation Aaron passed his driving test in a specially adapted vehicle, graduated from Brunel University with a degree in Sports Science and became the youngest ever disabled person to be awarded a motorsport racing license.
Currently driving a BMW E30 3-Series in the Marangoni Production BMW Championship he is the only disabled driver on the grid. Uusing only his hands to operate the vehicle controls Aaron pits his racing skills against 32 other drivers at some of the finest circuits around the country, including famous tracks such as Snetterton, Brands Hatch GP, Oulton Park, Cadwell Park, Silverstone, Donington Park and Castle Coombe.
Aaron’s attitude and determination to be involved in motorsport and not let his disability hold him back is hugely impressive. He is a true inspiration and recently received the Disabled Motoring UK’s ‘Get Going Award’ for his hard work helping to inspire and engage young people with disabilities in order to improve their mobility.
