My Name is Amani Jacobs i am 22 years young and i Am the founder and creator of a championship called "The Special Grand Prix"
The Special Grand Prix consists of a 15 Car Grid of less able bodied or "disabled" drivers from around the world ,the races will take place before Grand Prix's around the world as a feature race it will be a championship where manufacturers can showcase the latest technology in motorsport and because it is a non profitable organisation or a "charity" it can be used in other types of motorsport or engineering as research to help all types of engineering move forward.

Me & Motorsport
For my 12th Birthday i had a birthday Party at Teamworks Karting in Coseley Wolverhampton i was so quick that the staff at the track were in shock and they said i had "no fear" and urged my mum to get me a membership but because i didnt have the best up bringing money wise she couldnt afford to get me the membership so my uncles teamed up and bought me a year membership and every weekend i had my escape and safe heaven away from being sick i could go and race one of the staff advised my mom to enter me into the NKA Championship and from there i didnt look back i came third in my first ever attempt but due to my unfortunate health i constantly used to beat myself up and think i couldnt do it but one of my heroes Tiff Needell ex Touring car driver and Tv presenter told me to not to beat myself up so now i am turning my sickness into a positive and creating "The special Grand Prix" for the Special for people like me Nicholas Hamilton , Billy Monger and many more Talented and special people who are passionate about motorsport this will be the biggest thing since the para - olympics i just need the help of the public to accomplish the goal it is a selfless and none profit organisation and it isnt for me but for spectators to enjoy .
