Baronmotorsports, a charity set up in 2012 by ex Big Brother contestant Steve Gill to provide opportunities for disabled people to try a range of motorsports, brought their latest addition to Sainsbury’s in Newton Stewart recently.

The Volvo S60 is a fully track prepared touring car with special adapted controls to enable most disabled drivers to get behind the wheel and have a go on the UK’s racetracks. The car was adapted with the a grant from Sport Scotland and will be making its debut at Knockhill on Tuesday 21st April where John Clelland and 20 lucky disabled drivers will get to have a go.

Matt Kitson, a founding trustee of the charity with Steve said that over the next 12 months Baronmotorsports aims to develop an adapted Rally Car to enable disabled drivers to have a go at Rallying across Dumfries and Galloway as well as to take part in Autosolo tests.

With the support of the generous people of Wigtownshire and the support of Sainsbury, Newton Stewart, a total of £274 was raised for the charity.
