facebook image Ash Miller...A professional racing driver, being part of the Speed Of Sight family. Born and raised in Brisbane, Australia, Ash has had over 17 years of racing experience, kicking off with go karting at a young age and progressing through the ranks of Australian sports car racing. Ash took home the laurels of both Queensland State and Australian National Production Sports Car Champion in his Mazda MX5, before racing in a Lotus Elise in a bid to defend his titles. However, opportunity knocked, and a mid-season switch to the Renault Clio Cup UK Championship saw Ash move to the UK full time. It was here he got became a qualified race driving instructor, whilst also making his debut in the BritCar Endurance Championship, and with that, the opportunity to get involved with the Speed of Sight Charity organisation. Ash is also a keen professional Irish Dancer, having taken home several State and National Championships in Australia, en route to a World ranking. He has also been touring the globe professionally for the last decade, most recently as a Lead Dancer in the show Dance Masters. Being involved with Speed Of Sight… I first got wind of the Speed of Sight charity through one of my colleagues and fellow SOS instructor Jorge. I was thrilled to get go along and check out a charity I'd already heard so much about. However, I quickly realised these guys aren't just a charity; they're life changers. Over and over again, seeing the way that such a simple thing like driving, something most of us take for granted, can bring such a sense of overwhelming joy and freedom really hit home. Being able to guide people to eventually drive almost unassisted despite the challenges of sight or physical impairment is endlessly inspiring and incredibly special, oftentimes to within a point of drivers controlling the car unassisted. Mike's own story is one that you really do have to experience to grasp, such is the enormity of his determination to succeed, an immeasurable quality that is only shadowed by the size and warmth of his heart. Seeing the smiles, tears, laughs and even dances of joy from every single person that experiences the Speed of Sight initiative speaks for itself in volumes. I personally have been witness to genuinely life-changing emotions and feats of incredible driving from so many, and working with the beautiful and rare blend of people in the Speed of Sight family is always special. If you haven't already checked out what these amazing guys and girls get up to, I urge you to come and join us; it really is a charity that changes lives!

facebook image At Speed Of Sight we are extremely privileged to have the support of some quite frankly amazing people, who are the very reason why we regard our volunteers not as volunteers but as part of the SPEED OF SIGHT FAMILY - Please see this testimonial from Nicola Warwick ... I first came across Speed of Sight at a networking event where I met John, and they subsequently became one of my clients through the Business Growth Hub. I helped them access a range of business support including mentoring. At my first meeting with Mike I watched the famous video (hankies are usually required) and I was hooked. But I was only scratching the surface of the scope of the work that Speed of Sight does, and I had a long way to go to understand the daily challenges faced by someone who is blind. After a few months of knowing Speed of Sight and finding out more about what they did I mentioned my interest in photography and John asked if I would consider photographing one of their track days. The first event was at Three Sisters. It turned out to be life changing. I remember seeing people who, for whatever reason, had been unable to drive but, that day, they drove at speed around a race track. And loved it. Watching someone return, euphoric, from their drive is inevitably emotional (more hankies). You really understand what it means to people to have a freedom that many of us take for granted every day. Since then I've seen lots of people drive the Speed of Sight track cars. I've seen many come back time and again for yet another drive. It's not just about the drive but about the empowerment that people feel. A Speed of Sight drive shows people the extent of their potential and it’s much greater than many of them might have believed. Seeing people with life long disabilities and major challenges living their lives is always inspiring. I’ve met lots of amazing people who have touched my life. I’ve also seen the dedication of carers who make it possible for a disabled person to enjoy their life. Of course, Mike is a huge inspiration too not just for me but for all the disabled drivers that attend track days as well. Speed of Sight has changed my life. I met my now partner through my involvement and things have never been the same since!! Speed of Sight isn’t just a charity but a family.

Standout Supporter

Ben Harper Standout Supporter Ben Harper is a volunteer and more!
A great guy who is so generous with his time. Ben books days off from his full time job to attend our track days – no matter where in the country they are.
During his time with us he takes fantastic photos which he then donates to us. If that isn't enough he has used his incredible, self taught mechanical knowledge to resolve issues with our vehicles to keep them running on driving days - what a guy! He's also donated a memory stick and various accessories for the cars.

Ben – we don't know what we’d do without you! Thank you!
