Brand New Driving Experience
Track Day near Dudley, West Midlands
Monday 3rd June 2019


We are really excited to announce a Brand New Event – a unique Track Day near Dudley, West Midlands – Monday 3rd June 2019.

We’ve been working with Speed of Sight, a project started by Mike Newman, who is a blind driver of anything and everything mobile – and at speed! But they also acquired some adapted vehicles, which work well for us. We’ve had a couple of days with them in the north and everyone has loved it.

They’ve now expanded to some of our other regions and we’re delighted to offer a morning session at the Intu Merry Hill shopping centre in Brierley Hill near Dudley. There they have taken over a large tract of the car park to create a high-speed testing technical track.

We’ll be there for a meet and greet at 9.30am and there are three slots for our drivers at 10am, 11am and 12pm. So, we’ll finish at approx. 1.30pm.

On arrival, after the briefing and kit up, you will be taken to your Fast, Duel Control Car for an experience like no other. Speed of Sight have custom-made, adapted vehicles, and their skilled instructors will soon have you experiencing the thrills and exhilaration of racing around the Track. Absolute beginners or never-evers all welcomed!

The instructor is there to help you hone your skills at controlling your vehicle and getting the most out of this activity. So, remember this experience is suitable for the complete novice, right up to those with rally or track experience. You take the circuit at your own pace and it’s all tailored to your skill.

And don’t worry if you have never seen or driven a racing car before – just be ready to be amazed at what you can achieve!

Please note: Dress in layers, and bring waterproofs, as the cars are open top. Speed of Sight strongly recommend gloves as even on a warm day it can feel quite cold and the only shelter is under their gazebo. If sunny, bring sunscreen.

And remember that with Sportability anyone within our remit can participate free of charge.

So just to recap on those details:

Track Day – Monday 3rd June at 9.30 am.

The full address of the venue is: Pedmore Rd, Brierley Hill, West Midlands, DY5 1QX

Directions to the centre can be found on their website: intu Merry Hill.

There are toilet facilities and and plenty cafes etc in Merry Hill Shopping Centre, but there are NO toilet facilities in the car park or in the paddock.

The track is well signposted and Speed of Sight will set up in the Pit with plenty of Signage, so from the entrance gate follow signs to the red gazebo.

We’d love to see you there, so if you want to join us then please contact Valerie or Ann at the Sportability office on 020-8959-0089; or email us at info@sportability.org.uk

Best Wishes,

The Sportability Team
