Mercedes F1 Lewis Hamilton’s younger brother Nicolas announced his plans to compete in the exciting British Touring Car Championship in 2015.

He would become the first disabled driver to compete in the highly competitive BTCC.

Despite his lack of experience, he made his racing debut in 2011 as part of the Renault Clio Cup. He also raced in the
European Touring Car Cup last year.

“I am excited to announce my ambitions to become the first disabled athlete to compete in the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship in 2015,” he declared on the series’ official web site.
