As well as being a great driver, Kris is a great story. Kris was born profoundly deaf and embraces his situation and actually uses it as an advantage when racing. He has learned to drive by feeling the car.
Ask Kris Martin to do something for you and his standard response is "Not a problem." Stepping in a racecar that reaches speeds of over 200 miles per hour. Not a problem. Speaking to over 300 hundred students who look at him as a role model. Not a problem. Being born profoundly deaf. Not a problem. In fact, being born hearing impaired may have helped Kris. He learned to race by primarily using his tactile senses, and has given him a great ability to feel the track and use his instincts.
