Racing career

Renault Clio Cup United Kingdom

Hamilton made his racing debut in the Renault Clio Cup United Kingdom in 2011 driving for Total Control Racing.[1] He attracted much fan and media attention despite finishing last in his first race.[2] His first season was the subject of a BBC documentary entitled Racing with the Hamiltons: Nic in the Driving Seat.[3]

European Touring Car Cup

Hamilton moved up to the European Touring Car Cup for 2013, driving a SEAT León Supercopa for Baporo Motorsport.[4]

British Touring Car Championship

In 2015, Hamilton secured a deal with AmD Tuning to race an Audi S3 in five rounds of the British Touring Car Championship, becoming the first disabled driver to compete in the series.[5]

In 2019, Hamilton secured a full-time drive with Motorbase Performance along with Tom Chilton and Ollie Jackson.[6]

On 21 February 2020, Hamilton was confirmed as the fourth Team HARD driver in a Volkswagen CC, retaining his ROKiT sponsorship.[7] In the final race at Brands Hatch, in round 2 of the championship, Hamilton scored his first-ever BTCC point after finishing the race in 15th place.

Media career

On 8 March 2016, it was announced that Hamilton would be part of Channel 4's Formula One presentation team.[8]
