Ford GT Carries Driver’s Wheelchair

Jason Watt was once an up and coming race car driver in the mid to late 1990’s. During 1999, he was promoted to the main Super Nova Racing squad in the International Formula 3000 championship. During his time in the squad, he managed to win twice and become the runner-up to the championship. Unfortunately, his racing dreams were dashed during the off-season in 1999 when he was involved in a motorcycle accident that left him paralyzed from the chest down.

Because Watt’s passion is everything cars, his injury hasn’t held him back from the joys of driving fast cars. On his Instagram account, he has posted up images of his new Ford GT that’s specially equipped for him.

Inside is a driving setup that allows him to drive the American supercar without having to use his feet. What’s even more interesting is the fact that he can carry his wheelchair on top of the GT, thanks to the application of very strong suction cups. Now that’s ingenuity.
