INSPIRATIONAL DISABLED MOTORSPORT MARSHAL ACHIEVES EPIC NEW 24-HOUR WORLD RECORD ON TGA MOBILITY SCOOTER

http://youtu.be/g92zYIrjVjk

Steve Tarrant, 53 from Poole, is a remarkable disabled motorsport marshal, who has achieved a new World Record at Goodwood Motor Circuit, Chichester, by driving a TGA mobility scooter the furthest distance ever in 24 hours.

Steve completed his epic world record challenge on Sunday 18th May at 6pm following 24-hours of driving a TGA Breeze S4 GT mobility scooter (http://www.tgamobility.co.uk/product/breeze-s4) around a pre-determined course at Goodwood. Steve achieved a world record-breaking distance of 190.2 miles (306.1km) by driving through the night and completing over 1,800 laps of a 167m circuit, only stopping briefly for battery changes. Pending ratification, Steve will have smashed the current distance of 170.63 miles (274.60km) to officially hold a new Guinness World Record™ for 'The Greatest distance covered in 24 hours by a mobility scooter'.

This awe-inspiring effort by Steve in terms of his determination and stamina, has been heightened further by the engineering achievement. Not only did the TGA Breeze deliver 100% reliability and extraordinary battery range, it completed the course with purposely-punctured tyres to demonstrate the effectiveness of TGA's new sealant system (http://www.tgamobility.co.uk/product/tyre-puncture-prevention-system-300ml). This pioneering solution can be pre-injected into TGA scooter tyres and seals the majority of punctures automatically. It is manufactured by Poole's Sales Science who also provided a team of supporters to work with the onsite TGA engineers, Steve and the pit crew during the challenge.
