Speed of Sight introduces Blind Drunk


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 info@porschebolton.co.uk for more information about this and other forthcoming events.
