Blind Speed Fundraising Dinner

Meet the world's fastest blind man on a motorcycle

Be prepared for the ride of your life as special guests Ben Felten (the world’s fastest blind man on a motorcycle) and Kevin Magee (former Australian Grand Prix motorcycle racer), tell the story of lifelong friends and the pursuit to break the Guinness Book of Records for the fastest speed on a motorcycle ridden blindfolded.

Imagine riding a motorcycle in darkness with only a voice telling you where to go, what direction to turn, and when to stop. Now imagine how you would think of doing this scary but amazing feat at speeds of over 270km per hour.

As a teenager, Ben was diagnosed with a degenerative eye condition that left him completely blind in his 30s. But that hasn’t stopped him as he now aims to go one step further by becoming the fastest blind man in Australia on four wheels.

Kevin Magee raced in 36 Grand Prix events and took his first win at the 1988 Spanish Grand Prix. He also raced a few Superbike World Championship races, winning twice at Phillip Island in 1991 and 1992.

Their story is one of power, courage, laughter, frustration, achievement, and inspiration.

MC for the evening is special guest speaker, fitness and personal life coach, professional boxer and ‘Roll with the Punches’ podcaster Tiffanee Cook.
