Children living with a disability will have the chance to experience a need for speed thanks to the KickStart Targa event Cars for Kidz.

Event organiser Alan Stevenson speaks with Brian Carlton about the upcoming event on April 23rd.

“A lot of these kids haven’t been in these sort of vehicles. They see them on T.V and in books, and say ‘wow, I like that!' but we actually get to take them for a drive so, it makes their day,” he says.
