Last month we were delighted to be invited to visit the Bank Top Brewery Tap in Bolton by Mike Newman, Founder of the Speed Of Sight charity. Mike is blind yet holds eight Guinness World Records for high speed land and water records.
The evening event was held to introduce a new ale ‘Blind Drunk’ to commemorate Mike. The Speed of Sight charity gives people with various diabilities the opportunity to drive, when normally they wouldn't get the chance to do so.
Mike is an enormous petrolhead, so he and all the guests enjoyed exploring our Porsche 718 Cayman on display. We also donated several Cayman die cast paperweights as raffle prizes and the proceeds will go to Speed of Sight.
This charity creates wonderful opportunities for people who don’t normally get the freedom to drive as we do and we thoroughly enjoyed our time learning more about it. Please contact the team at Porsche Centre Bolton on firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about this and other forthcoming events.

*Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). You can find more information on WLTP at
. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
