  • He is a handling consultant on the globally popular video racing game Project CARS.
  • Nicolas was born with Cerebral Palsy and his determination to succeed as a racing driver makes him a real inspiration for others.
  • He races with modifications to the cockpit of his UK Clio Cup - chiefly he uses a hand-controlled clutch.
