This was a film made by Tom Newman about me and my drag racing.
Nigel describes himself not as disabled, but a driver with a disability. He's exactly the same as any other drag racer, they all share the same ethos and this is: ‘Why not? You only live once.’ Because of his cheerful, positive attitude, Nigel is a much loved and respected figure in the sport. It's hardly surprising his team is called Aveago Racing.
But the pressure of Nigel’s disability is something he struggles to escape. This film explores this pressure; on Nigel’s family, drag racing and on his faith. This is a film about escape, as well as the quintessentially British world of UK drag racing. It's a world of American muscle cars, daredevil motorcyclists, tinkering, tea, tents and foot-long hotdogs.
