Driving at the Speed of Sight

The Speed of Sight charity host a track day, inviting visually impaired and people with disabilities who otherwise wouldn't be able to get behind the wheel, to enjoy a drive at the Three Sister Race Circuit, Ashton.

Speed of Sight gives visually impaired people an opportunity to take to the track and empowers them with the confidence to try something they might previously have not believed possible. Founder Mark Newman was born completely blind and his passion for cars lead him to break multiple speed records as he gained the title of the fastest blind man alive. His experiences led himself and co-founder John Galloway to create Speed of Sight. Since 2012 the charity has held driving experiences up and down the country.
