What We Do

About Mike Newman

One of our co-founders is Mike Newman, an 8 time World Record holder (7 Guinness World Records.)  Mike is the currently the fastest blind man on the planet on land and water.

Those who know him will describe Mike as a modest man who combines his thrill for speed with a determination to increase the equality of opportunity for others.

Formally a bank manager, Mike broke his first land speed record on a motorbike, going on to achieve five world land speed records in a car and more recently achieving the water speed record.
