Hi, my name is Noel Wilson. I’m an ex Motor Sport Instructor who worked in the Corporate Industry for 20 years.
In 2013, I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. I now want to put something back whilst I still can!

Has anybody ever set an official lap time for any of the UK circuits on a mobility scooter? ………………………….. I don’t think so.
I would like to raise a minimum of 20K for the MS Society.
THE CHALLENGE - We are out setting an official lap time for an 8 mph mobility scooter for every circuit/venue in the UK for my charity venture -
Motor Sport for MS.
Not on just the race circuits though, but the Rally X Circuits, Drag Strips, Hill Climbs, Sprint Circuits and Stock Car Short Ovals, in fact anything we can think of which caters for wheels. I don't want to do it on anything spiced up, just my normal run of the mill eight mph mobility scooter. In racing terms Group N. (Group Noel)
What we do, to make it special, is to set an official time with a transponder fitted at all of the venues made available to us. We then get an official print out the same as a driver/team gets at the end of a race. This makes it a real one off for my charity, all the times are official.
Stand 21 have very kindly supplied race overalls embroidered with the 'Motor Sport for MS' logo, a helmet, race boots, race gloves and a HANS unit.
My “race” Scooter has been wrapped in the KCMG LMP2 Le Mans 2015 winning car colours! A real stunner.
We have had a very positive response from all of the circuit owners/promoters where we have run so far and always fit in with the circuits requirements and timings.
We have been officially recognised by the MS society and they are helping us by supplying collecting buckets, tabards and the use of their charity number to enable us to collect from the public whilst at race meetings setting our lap time.
Follow us on.
The inspiration for the colour scheme of my scooter. The beautiful KCMG Oreca.
