Leading transport consultant Graham takes on Le Mans… on a scooter

Intelligent Transport Systems consultant Andy Graham has celebrating the 100th birthday of the Le Mans 24 hour race by racing around roads inside the famous French circuit on a push scooter.

The White Willow Consulting owner, who was attending his 35th running of the race, took on a scooter challenge to raise money for the charity Mission Motorsport, which trains wounded sick and injured ex-service people in motorsport and automotive engineering.

So far this fundraising at Le Mans has raised nearly £20,000 for the charity.

59-year-old Mr Graham had aimed to to do a lap of the actual Le Mans track. However, because of restrictions imposed by officials at the track, he took on roads nearby instead, while dressed in 1923 Bentley Boy attire, which involved white overalls, googles, cravat and a flat cap. This took place in temperatures around 40 degrees Celcius.

Not able to avoid adding ITS solutions, his scooter included a see.sense tracking light on it which provided real-time data.

Along with an auction, Mr Graham and his friends have already raised more than £4,600 for the charity.
