Tarrant revs up mobility scooter for World Record

Disabled motor sport marshal Steve Tarrant will attempt to break the World Record this weekend (17-18 May) at Goodwood Motor Circuit for greatest distance ridden in 24 hours on a mobility scooter.
 
Tarrant’s bid comes 14 years after he lost his leg in a marshalling accident and only two years after his role as a medal-bearing gamesmaker at the London Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2012.
 
This is his second attempt to break the World Record, after being stripped of his earlier victory for official purposes on a technicality.
 
The 53-year-old hopes to complete 200 miles on the hard surface circuit at Goodwood.
 
Tarrant’s TGA Breeze S4 GT mobility scooter is capable of up to 10 miles per hour. He will also be riding to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
 
“It’s fantastic to have such an historic location as Goodwood to make this record attempt,” said Tarrant.
