A JUNIOR racing driver with autism had his "dream come true" after being invited to test a supercar at a track day.

Bobby Trundley from Wokingham joined Team BRIT in January after a successful junior karting career.

The 20-year-old is aiming to race in the first all-disabled team in the Le Mans 24 hour, where drivers with a range of physical and psychological challenges can access motorsport.

After winning three out of his four races in the BMW 116 Trophy, team founder Dave Player arranged for Bobby to test in the team's Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT4 at a recent track day at Donington Park.

Bobby is now searching for partners to support his move into GT4 racing after being known as one of the most successful drivers with autism in the sport.

He said: "Team BRIT has made a dream come true for me yet again.

“The Aston Martin is such a different beast to the BMW in which I’m racing this year, so is a huge step up.

"I still feel speechless about having the opportunity to do this, "I never thought I would drive a GT race car.

“I'm honoured to drive a British race car with a British race team that is making such a difference. I hope that with some additional sponsors on board, I can keep progressing, representing Team BRIT at this higher level.”

Team Brit is a branch of the charity KartForce and aims to inspire people with disabilities, PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and mental health issues to showcase their talents through motorsport.

It aims to show the world that people, despite their disabilities, can achieve whatever they want in life.

Bobby has a full test session planned on September 12.
