Simon Palmer

Simon, a former karter himself, found himself back at the tracks when his son, Alfie, expressed an interest in karting. In response to Alfie's request, Simon reached out for assistance, and Autism In Motorsports (AIM) was there to provide the support he needed. Since then, Simon has remained dedicated to supporting AIM in its mission. With a penchant for humour and a willingness to pitch in where needed, Simon's involvement with the organisation reflects his cheerful and hands-on approach. The laughter and camaraderie found within the karting community, combined with his commitment to helping others, have solidified Simon's role as a valuable contributor to the AIM community.

Lisa enjoys keeping the morale up with the drivers, celebrating the successes and learning from the things that didn’t go so well. Lisa felt honoured to be offered the position of director alongside Paul, Mark, Simon and Graham and looks forward to being part of the future for AIM.
