Blindfold Motorcycle Land Speed Record

motoDNA is getting behind an amazing Aussie rider’s attempt to break the Blindfold Motorcycle Land Speed Record.

Motorcycle rider BEN FELTEN has been fully blind since his late 20’s.

Now middle-aged, Ben will attempt to break the Blindfold Motorcycle Land Speed Record, which is currently held by Billy Baxter, of the UK at 265.33 km/h.

The record attempt will be held as a Special Feature event of the Temora 1000 on October 25th 2014.

Ben has also established the Sight of Dream Foundation as he aims to break down stereotypes and inspire others to pursue their dreams.

motoDNA CEO Mark McVeigh said, “Ben’s passion and drive to realize his dream fits perfectly with motoDNA’s ethos of delivering skills and inspiration, enabling riders to fulfill their Motorcycling aspiration’s”.

motoDNA Coach and 500 Grand Prix Legend Kevin Magee will also play a key role as technical advisor.

Ben is still raising funds for the attempt.
