Casting Call for Adaptive Drivers

The producer from Electric Robin has contacted us about this exciting casting call for Adaptive Drivers.

The Series

We’re making an exciting new sports series for a major streamer presented by a well-known Paralympian and a broadcaster with a non-visible disability.  The aim of this three-part documentary series is to explore and encourage greater inclusion in UK sports especially for people living with disabilities and members of the LGBTQ+ community.  Each episode will feature contributors going on a journey of sporting discovery with our presenters.  (Janet Chute – Electric Robin)
Electric Robin wonder if any DBF members might be interested in applying for their exciting new casting call. They are looking for motorsports fans who drive using hand controls due to a lower limb impairment. This could lead to someone getting the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to train as a racing driver which would include doing some laps around one of the UK’s major racetracks.
The series aims to show that sports such as motor racing can be accessible to people living with disabilities, including those who drive using hand controls. The driver would need to have full hand function to be able to operate the racing hand controls. The need for the specificity in the casting is in case their driver drops out at the last minute, which occasionally happens in TV. The ‘super substitute’ would be required to safely drive the same specially adapted racing car.

How to Apply

All applicants must be 18+. a UK resident and hold a valid driving licence. Please get in touch with Electric Robin if you fit those criteria and you’re interested in trying out for this casting call for adaptive drivers.
This is an extremely fast turnaround casting so please encourage anyone you know who’s interested to apply ASAP.
