I hadn't noticed that the thread was bumped up from being started in 2003.

From formula drivers, the most recent was Jean De Pourtales, who raced during 1999-2006 with a prosthetic arm in the F3000 minor series (that was Italian F3000 - Euro 3000 Series). Even could manage to score points.

I may be wrong but I believe David Good 1961 hillclimb champion may have had something wrong with his arm? I think Peter Lawson told me, as Peter bought the BRM 4WD P67 off him Peter won the 1968 championship with the BRM. There are some pictures of David in the Mike Hayward collection and it certainly looks like he was driving one handed. Quite a feat

David Good had one normal arm and a stump . I pushed his F5000 hillclimb Mclaren M10B many times as a start line marshal.His disability did not hinder his driving .

A very nice man , and appreciative of our efforts , unlike one of his period colleagues who did his best to mow us proles down. David died earlier this year I think- or late last was it ?

Indeed, David lost his battle with cancer in January 2017. David was unable to race on circuits due to his inability to obtain the medical clearance from the RAC Medical Panel for circuit racing.

I did a hill climb meeting at Wyscombe Park earlier this year. There was a motor bike racer with only one arm competing.
