Ex-Serviceman Sets Hill Climb Record in Brotherwood Wheelchair Accessible Nissan

Amid all of the noise and smoke at the 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed, a very different type of course record was set, as Lionel O’Connor became both the first, and the fastest person ever to complete the famous hillclimb in a wheelchair accessible vehicle.

In 2006 Private O’Connor was serving with the Royal Anglians in Iraq when his vehicle was caught in a huge explosion, killing two of his colleagues. Lionel was severely injured, losing his left leg as a result. At the 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed, Lionel made history to become the very first wheelchair user in the 23 years of the event to complete the iconic hill climb course as a passenger aboard a wheelchair accessible Brotherwood vehicle, piloted by Goodwood regular and former Nissan BTCC racing driver Andy Middlehurst.
