RACING CARS
By Chris Schnell
Chris loves being on the start line - once the light turns to green, all the hard work in the garage is forgotten. His cars take two thousand hours to build, and a few seconds to destroy, including the possibility of hurting yourself. But there's a risk in everything that you do. It's been 18 years since his accident, and the hospital staff don't believe what he gets up to. He'd like more recognition of what he's done because, as a quadriplegic, he might be able to give them a focus to help them specialise so they can become the best. A lot of people laughed, but Chris is sure that his car will do the business.
