Speed of Sight are approaching an incredible milestone! Speed of Sight have a singular mission: to change lives with our driving experiences. Speed of Sight offers high-speed driving and racing experiences to people with blindness, visual impairment, disability, or anybody who has been told they’ll never drive due to one of these! We also aim to change perceptions of disability and promote empathy and understanding from fully abled and fully sighted people with our blindfolded driving experiences, which allow them to truly experience the loss of sight!
Speed of Sight was founded by Mike Newman, better known as the fastest blind man on the entire planet! Mike hold eight world records for achieving the highest speed on land and water and performing aerial acrobatics unaided and completely blind.
Speed of Sight relies on the donations of our corporate sponsors who fund our events through booking our blindfolded driving days, as well as the incredible support of our Inspire25 members who have signed up to provide a small payment of £25 per month to help fund our charitable activities!
Now Speed of Sight are rapidly approaching our next milestone which, after our incredible grand finale event of the season being held at Silverstone Circuit, is our charity’s tenth anniversary, which will fall at the start of next season!
To celebrate, we are hosting an amazing event! On 23rd April 2022 we will roll out the red carpet for a nice of sparkles and bubbles at the gorgeous DeVere Cranage Estate in Holmes Chapel. Guests will be treated to a beautifully cooked three course meal with wine accompaniments. There will also be live entertainment, music, dancing, and competitions, so it’s definitely not an event you want to miss!

Full price tickets are priced at £90 and entire tables for 12 guests can be reserved for £1000, which will include a bottle of champagne, a strip of raffle tickets, and a full-page advertisement in the program in the price! Come and join us at this once in a lifetime event to celebrate our biggest milestone yet!
