Last year, The Arc launched The Arc Audi Racing Program, a partnership between The Arc and RS Werkes (formerly Istook’s Motorsports). The goal was to provide a unique opportunity for people with I/DD to get a taste of what it is like to be part of a fast-paced professional race crew at select races in the 2012 Pirelli World Challenge race series. This remarkable program allowed chapters of The Arc to participate in races across the country, and gave individuals with I/DD a once in a lifetime opportunity.
The program sparked the interested of award-winning film producer and director Heidi Reinberg. Following a chapter as they participated in the program she captured a day at the race track with people with I/DD, including a pit crew member, who is raising awareness about what people with I/DD can do when given the chance. Check out The Arc of San Francisco’s day at the race track.
