This is one of heart rendering stories that pulls at you heart strings. As a result of being diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease and given 2-5 years to live. Jason was having none of that. He was a keen skier and kept himself very fit until this dreadful disease struck him and he became wheelchair bound.

Jason outlived his predicted prognosis. So he decided to set himself a new goal in life. Of course he thought anything was still possible. Consequently, he decided to go for the new world speed record for an electric wheelchair.

In his past then Jason was also keen on motorsport.

Including  fast cars and motorcycles. As a result he has managed to involve a company called Indra. Helping to design and build the wheelchair that would be capable of reaching speeds of 55 MPH . Thus breaking the old world record. So, his ultimate aim is to be in the Guinness World Record book. Hence for the fastest electric wheelchair in the world.

This attached article tells a fuller story. Also going into more details of his  life expectancy and into more depth about Jason’s family. So when he was first diagnosed, Jason was determined to raise money for charities. Indeed he was the first person to reach the top of Mount Snowdon in an electric wheelchair. Another amazing feat was to abseiling from the Humber Bridge, not too far away from where I live in Yorkshire.
