Motor Racing Experience at Highlands Motorsport Park – Saturday 10th October

10/10/2020

We have confirmed the drive of the Ford Mustang, at Highlands Motorsport Park, in Cromwell for Saturday the 10th October. The sessions start at 8.30am and there is a drive every ½ hour.

https://highlands.co.nz/, in conjunction with http://www.wheelchairs.co.nz/ have given us a fantastic discount to get the price down to $229 per person for everyone attending on that day.

There are very limited numbers so if you are interested please let Brett know asap to secure a drive.

The Mustang has a side Intrusion bar to get over and into the car.

The seat is also a bit of a drop from the intrusion bar.

Check out the video for a look at the seating position https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iiXghblSisY

If you struggle with transfers YOU MUST have at least 1 caregiver (2 is preferable) to help you in the car.

See the attached picture for the style of the push-pull hand-control. If you need to practice with a glove for the hand-controls, the size is the same as most std push-pull or radial hand-controls.

There is a spinner that can be fitted or removed easily depending on people’s preference. If you have a splint with a pin bring it with you and this can be used. Due to the shape of the steering wheel it is not at an optimum position

If you have an able-bodied friend they can go for a drive in the Radical. However we cannot offer the same discount for this.
