CAR - Creating Accessible Racing
The goal of the car team is to develop a modified vehicle that allows children with disabilities to safely enjoy the thrill of racing. This is accomplished by adding a secondary steering wheel with a clutch-based override that allows control of the vehicle to be given to the child at the discretion of a supervising adult with their own steering wheel.
The team is developing a set of instructions with their design with the intent that a parent could install this mechanism on an off-the-shelf go-kart with basic tools. They are also seeking partnerships to establish an event at the Grand Prix racetrack for local children to use their kart.
