Thursday, April 19, 2018 Landsail Tyres! the perfect fit for the Speed Of Sight charity!

Driving charity Speed Of Sight and Landsail Tyres have launched a new partnership for 2018.

Speed Of Sight, offers live changing driving activities for people with different abilities by way of driving our specially adapted high-performance cars to offer track day experiences for individuals with a variety of challenges, , including the blind and partially sighted. Landsail will support Speed of sight in fundraising efforts and at awareness events.

Landsail will also provide tyres for the charities vehicles, along with co branded team wear. Trusted by millions, Landsail offers one of the widest ranges of tyre sizes and types in the UK and will also run special limited discount offers in conjunction with Speed Of Sight during the partnership.

Our CEO Mike Newman holds a number of incredible landspeed records and enthused, “The support of Landsail was very important to the charity’s work. I have always loved speed, and in particular being in control of speed.” He continues, “As a blind person feeding that passion is challenging. Speed Of Sight have costs to meet and equipment, parts and various supplies, we need in order to continue our resounding success. Partnering with Landsail, a brand that truly gets what our mission is a positive step for us because we are working with a business that shares our goals.”

Peter Cross, Landsail’s UK Commercial Manager, said: “The opportunity to join forces with Speed Of Sight was one we simply couldn’t resist.!It is hard for the average person without physical disabilities to feel the thrill of speed, the power of controlling a vehicle, without ever being able to do it autonomously, because they are used to controlling their cars independently of others on a daily bases. However, for people with a varying range of disabilities, you are sat with qualified driving instructors which is a positive team building experience between you and the driving instructor, a fantastic opportunity to get the driving thrill of a lifetime!

"By supporting Speed Of Sight, we hope to evolve in helping more disabled people break down barriers, turning them into positive experiences. An important message to take away is that having a disability in our view, is the drive-through to success!"
