Nicolas Hamilton took the opportunity of walking the red carpet with Mel Grevatt his long term girlfriend at Pride of Sports Award ceremony on Wednesday night. Read on to find more about the gala night which saw the handsome couple enjoying each other’s company.
The award function which is held every year saw many famous personalities attending the event held at Grosvenor House in London. The 23-year-old came at the event wearing navy blue blazer and trousers while, his stunning girlfriend chose to wear a strapless red gown. Though this is the couple’s first appearance in the award ceremony, Mel has been to Nicholas as well as his older brother’s races quite often in the past and is very much a part of the family.
Nic, who is presently competing in British Touring Car Championship, suffers from spastic diplegia, which is a form of cerebral palsy. During his childhood he was wheelchair bound. In an interview he mentioned despite his disability, he has learnt how to live well. He rarely takes painkillers and tries to go through the pain without it.
Nicolas had suffered from several medical issues. He was born prematurely and doctors during his very early years had predicted that he will not be able to walk again. However, through sheer determination he has been able to reach the position that he is enjoying now. He has had a fairly good year. He became the first driver to secure a deal to race an Audi S3 in five rounds in the British Touring Car Championship despite suffering from disability.
Nicholas maintains that he and his entire family was always proud of his half brother Lewis’ success and was “never jealous” of him and his success. Lewis has won the Formula One World Champion thrice. Lewis is mentor to Nic and guides him in his professional as well as other aspects of life as well.
