In episode 5, Nathalie McGloin talks about how wheelchair rugby helped her come to terms with her injury, the importance of changing her mindset and her new passion for motor racing.
Nathalie is a racing driver with a twist. At 16 years old Nathalie was involved in a road traffic accident resulting in her breaking her neck at level C6/7. This has left her completely paralysed from the chest down.
The accident never deterred her from driving and in 2015 Nathalie became the first ever female spinal injured driver to be granted her race licence in the UK. 2015 saw her complete her first race season in The Porsche Club Championship racing a hand controlled Cayman S. That first season also saw her compete in her debut endurance race, the Race of Remembrance 1000km at Anglesey where she formed an all spinal injured race team, again the first of it’s kind in the UK.
