Sevenoaks: Lewis Hamilton's brother Nic to join Wrotham's Motorbase Performance team

By Charlie Harman

The brother of one of Britain's best F1 drivers is joining a Kent-based team in pursuit of silverware.

Nic Hamilton - brother of Lewis - has signed up with Motorbase Performance, a racing team from Wrotham.

He'll be joining Ollie Jackson and Tom Chilton for the 2019 season, with the latter hoping to improve on his third place rank from last year.

Nic, who has cerebral palsy, said: "They've got me as a disabled driver which is new to them - they have no idea what to expect from me. A lot of people expect me not to do very well this year.

"My announcement went well, there was a lot of negativity which is great because it fires me up. So I'm super excited, we've got a big mountain to climb.

"But I'm just going to treat it like I do with my condition, people didn't expect me to race a car and I wasn't even meant to stand up and walk.

"So I'm used to exceeding expectations and overcoming a lot of obstacles."
