Ben Felten is the world’s fastest blind man on a motorcycle!

In March 2018 on a salt lake in outback South Australia, Ben recorded an average speed of 266.685km/h, simultaneously breaking an FIM world land speed record and a Guinness World Record pending ratification.

Former MotoGP racer Kevin Magee (Magoo) guided Ben down the track using an analogue radio. Magoo and Paul Simpson, radio communications engineer supported Ben to achieve his life long dream.

The Blind Speed team will challenge their world records at Speed Week and World Speed Trials Australia in March 2019.
