Hi. I am new to the forum but have owned my 2000 Boxster 3.2S for a few years now. Itís been adapted for me to drive, as Iím paralysed from the chest down - and itís a manual (stick shift) - because having an auto would have been too easy!!

Raced a manual Boxster in 2016, but found the adaptions were not suitable and decided to focus on two wheels instead. Itís now being painted, all though no idea when itís going to be ready due to the current UK lockdown. When itís finished Iíll put up some newer photos to share.

Hope all are staying safe and healthy.
Kind regards
Talan

Welcome to the forum. Some pics of the 2000 would be great! I'd like to see the setup.

Cheers!

Welcome, Talan!

I once raced with two guys that were paraplegics. They were both pretty quick; if you didn't know, you'd never guess that they didn't have the use of their legs.

You said you are focusing on two wheels now - do you race a motorcyclee? If so, that seems even more difficult that driving a car!
