Mike Newman

Left Hand Racing Driver
Since 2015

Mike Newman started his career in racing car for charity purpose.

He was born to be fast and came from racing heritage.

It all started with one man. One man we like to call “Super Human, Mike Newman”
Born completely blind, Mike always had a passion for cars, so much so, it was his life’s ambition to become a racing driver.

But, as you can imagine, this ambition came with many challenges. No blind person in history had ever achieved this goal.

However, just because he is disabled, doesn’t mean he’s UNABLE. Mike worked tirelessly to live his dream, and through grit and determination to succeed, he worked alongside a local Jaguar dealership, to acquire a racing car that would enable him to do it.

Fast-forward over a decade, and Super Human, Mike Newman is a 9 times World Record Holder and currently the fastest blind man on land and water on the planet.

His unrivalled achievements speak for themselves…
