Basingstoke racing driver Aaron Morgan is celebrating after securing a podium position in his first race of the year with Team BRIT.

The 30-year-old who broke his back in a motocross accident when he was just 15 years old, is a driver for Team BRIT, an all-disabled racing team.

Aaron teamed up with fellow driver, Bobby Trundley who lives with autism, to race in the endurance category of the Britcar Championship.

After a tricky qualifying session, the pair finished in P4 in race one, before battling to take P3 in race 2. Bobby also secured the coveted ‘Driver of the Day’ trophy.

Aaron said: “I’m absolutely over the moon with the weekend. I was feeling pretty nervous heading into the race but everyone in the team put me at ease which meant I could perform at my best.

“It’s so amazing to be part of such a fantastic team and I cannot wait to see what we can achieve at the next race.

“Thank you so much to Allied Mobility and CDW for your continued support.”

Aaron was in a life-changing accident fourteen years ago. A keen motocross racer from the age of 7, Aaron regularly took part in local race meetings.

On April 14, 2006, he had an accident whilst riding a jump on his favourite track, causing him to break his spine.

Aaron stopped breathing for almost nine minutes before being airlifted to Salisbury Hospital. He was then transferred to Southampton Hospital, where he remained in a coma for almost four weeks.

After a lengthy period of recovery at the Duke of Cornwall Spinal injuries Unit in Salisbury, Aaron returned to his passion for motorsport, becoming the youngest disabled person to achieve a National B Race Licence. Since 2014, Aaron has raced as the only disabled driver in the BMW Compact Cup Championship.

Aaron’s sponsors, Allied Mobility and CDW, are supporting him for the first two rounds of this year’s Championship and he hopes to find additional support to complete the full GT4 season.

Aaron will next race September 12 at Oulton Park.
