Warren McKinlay was injured in a motorcycle accident which left him with a traumatic brain injury, but found a new lease of life with the Team BRIT squad.

He was contacted by Only Motors TV earlier this year, and led to Mr McKinlay being featured on an episode of #Petrolheads where he talked about his motorsport background, his time in the armed forces, his accident and subsequent recovery and his journey to finding Team BRIT and taking part in the Fun Cup.

The episode was published online earlier in the week, with the episode set to be broadcast on Linear TV on Sunday from 7pm.

The team, which races a VW Beetle in the Fun Cup, is next in action at the Welsh coastal circuit of Anglesey on September 23.
