Nathalie, who is the first woman with a severe spinal injury to obtain a racing licence in 2015, is a woman on a mission. Since breaking her neck in a car crash as a passenger when she was just 16 years old, Nathalie has continued to pursue various sporting challenges on and off the track. While at university she began playing wheelchair rugby gaining a place on the GB national squad but it was the introduction to motorsport during a track day that ignited her fire.
2017 will see Nathalie committed to her duties as a ‘Dare to be Different’ ambassador and she will be contesting the Porsche Club Championship in the UK and selected sports car endurance events. Also, she has signed to take part in the extremely challenging 2017 London Marathon Wheelchair Race in April.
Nathalie McGloin commented: “A high quality fireproof is essential to get the best results in motorsport. When I’m in the car, my sole focus has to be my driving. As a driver with a spinal injury, I struggle to regulate my body temperature. I wear my Walero products for my sports training as well. Whether I’m racing or playing sports, Walero takes care of my comfort and temperature regulation leaving me to focus on my performance.”
Added Fiona James, Managing Director, Walero Ltd: “We are excited to be working with Nathalie; she is one of the most positive, vibrant and determined people we’ve met and she will be a great asset to Team Walero. Our products should really help her achieve her goals both on and off the track.”
Walero products were developed by NASA for off-world applications to regulate body temperature in any conditions. The thermo-regulating know-how has been proven to actually reduce perspiration by up to 33%.
