Kartforce is a charity run by Dave Player who is dedicated to helping injured service men and women. He has designed a unit that allows Karts to be controlled by just one hand which means that soldiers who have lost arms and legs can enjoy the thrill of racing karts.
It's a great fun sport and allows amputees the opportunity to race against each other as well as able bodied drivers.

We were asked if we would donate a video to help promote the cause and so we filmed Corporal Andy Reid at Daytone in Manchester who was using the special controls developed by Kartforce. Andy lost his right arm and both legs in an explosion in Afghanistan and has amazed his doctors, family and friends with accomplishments that no one would have thought possible.
