Sixty people who are blind or have low vision will be given the rare chance to get behind the wheel at the inaugural Blind Speed Track Day at Goulburn's Wakefield Park Raceway on Wednesday, May 4.
Hosted by Blind Speed, in partnership with Vision Australia, Blind Sports and Recreation NSW/ACT and others, participants will get a range of opportunities to get in touch with their inner rev-head, with the highlight being the chance to drive a car for a supervised lap of the raceway.
Along with driving a supervised lap, participants will get to take a hot lap around the track in a race car as well as jump on the back of a motorcycle.
The day is the brainchild of Blind Speed founder Ben Felten.
Blind due to retinitis pigmentosa, a rare genetic condition, Ben has not let that get in the way of his speed dreams.
In 2018, Ben set the Guinness World Record for fastest speed for a motorcycle ridden blindfolded, when he hit an average speed of 272km/h in outback South Australia.
Blind Speed Track Day at Wakefield Park this Wednesday from 9.30am to 12.30pm.
