Stanley Black & Decker - Harder Faster Stronger
Supporting The Makers, The Dreamers and The Fighters
Paralysed from the chest down, Nathalie competes against able-bodied drivers in a hand-controlled Cayman S in the Porsche Club Championship.
Her charity Spinal Track offers disabled drivers the opportunity to experience track driving in specially adapted cars which is incredibly motivating and inspiring for those who experience it, so much so that Nathalie has drawn international attention and is now the President of the FIA Disability and Accessibility Commission.
She is also an inspirational speaker, who delivers keynote speeches around the world to share her unique story, encouraging women and disabled people into Motorsports, and helping audiences believe that anything is possible.
Omni and Indicia spent several days with Nathalie, filming different aspects of her life; from track days at Brands Hatch, overseeing and attending Spinal Track events, training at the National Spinal Injuries Centre in Buckinghamshire, where she plays wheelchair rugby. We also captured a sense of her homelife to help present a powerful and inspirational portrait of what’s achievable following a life changing injury.
The physical and mental toll of her commitment to her sport is considerable, and it was important that we portrayed the authenticity of her life as a disabled sports person with a powerful message to tell.
Omni are incredibly proud of the work we’ve created with Indicia for Stanley Black & Decker, and look forward to producing more empowering stories in future.
