Joystick Racer - With 200 km/h over the race track

A childhood dream becomes reality for Janis McDavid

The International Day of Persons with Disabilities has been celebrated every year since 1993 on December 3. It aims to raise awareness of the concerns of people with disabilities. The PARAVAN GmbH and Schaeffler Paravan Technologie GmbH & Co. KG impressively demonstrate how inclusion can also work in motor sports. An action that encourages other people to become mobile and overcome barriers. Janis McDavid drove more than 320,000 km without an accident thanks to the drive-by-wire technology Space Drive and with the help of a 4-way joystick in recent years.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Due to the renewed intensification of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) problem and the associated nationwide regulations to contain the spread of the virus, we at PARAVAN have reacted and further strengthened our already proven protective measures and adapted them to the situation. The protection of the health of our customers, guests, employees and suppliers is of utmost importance to us. The aim of the extended hygiene measures is to further minimize the risk of infection for all parties involved while still ensuring ongoing operations. By adhering to the protective measures (wearing a mask, keeping distance, hygiene) we can now offer our customers and guests our full range of advice and services in the 2nd Corona wave.

Nevertheless, before visiting us at PARAVAN Mobility Park Aichelau or our Heidelberg branch, please contact our mobility or service advisors by telephone. You will find the relevant contact numbers here:

Together we will master this difficult challenge. Let's be considerate of each other, wear a mouth-and-nose protection and keep our distance! Thank you very much for your understanding and trust and above all: Stay healthy!

Paravan Kundin Anja

In hospital they asked me: Why don`t you obtain a driver´s license? Now I have enough space, and can just call a friend and go shopping together.

Anja, 41
Paravan Kunde Luka

I never thought that it would work out so quickly with my driver´s license and the new car. Soon I can decide on my own when to leave the house in the morning. Thanks to my own car, I am now more flexible and don´t have to rely on anyone else.

Luka, 18
Paravan Kundin Jenny

Incredible. The employment agency agreed to bear the expenses for the new Volkswagen van and  its adaptation for my disability.

Jenny, 32
Paravan Kundin Anita

When I´m ready, I can get into my car and drive to work and training courses on my own. I feel secure and am totally happy with the new car. Without your great support, this would not have happened so quickly. Thank you so much!
