PRI Magazine also looks at how adaptive race car equipment allows drivers with disabilities to overcome challenges and compete on track while winning championships and setting records in the process.

“Adaptive race cars have opened the doors for paraplegic and quadriplegic drivers, those born without limbs, amputees, and others to pilot cars in competition. Even blindness isn’t necessarily a barrier in select racing venues. Disabilities don’t extinguish the competitive spirit in drivers, nor the competitive spirit in the motorsports aftermarket, where finding solutions to difficult problems is just another day at the office.”


Dion von Moltke of Blayze explains what ICE pedal is, why it happens and what you can do to avoid it.

“If you aren’t sure if you have had an ICE pedal before or not that means you have not. When this happens you have no doubt at what you just felt. When you get an ICE pedal the brake pedal itself feels like a rock, no matter how hard you push the pedal down it will not budge. The brake pedal is essentially locked in the in a high position. At the same time you are pushing the brakes as hard as you can the car is only slowing down at maybe 10% – 20% at the rate you were expecting it to and no matter how hard you press the car just won’t slow down any faster. It’s seriously scary stuff!”

PRI Magazine looks at the fact that since most major sanctioning bodies and many automakers are now offering dedicated programs, high-performance driving events are becoming preeminent motorsports gateways.

“This has ushered in the era of high-performance driving events, or HPDEs. These programs follow an ethos similar to grassroots autocross events and focus on minimizing the barriers to entry through low costs and basic car preparation requirements. And much like autocross events, participation in HPDE programs also provides an opportunity for these drivers to get connected to a motorsports-minded community of enthusiasts.”
