Organised by charity Mobility Choice, the free-to-attend Mobility Roadshow is Europe’s leading consumer-focused event for people of any age living with restricted mobility. Since 1983, this premier international show has delivered opportunity and choice to disabled and older people with mobility needs. Get Going Live! is a test-drive feature that focuses on young and novice disabled drivers and opens up a new world of driving opportunities for future generations.
The 2016 event will take place for the first time at Silverstone, home to The British Grand Prix and at the heart of international motor sport. A remarkable experience awaits in a location full of British motor racing heritage: UK and international visitors will have the unique opportunity to test drive adapted and wheelchair accessible vehicles (WAVS) around the iconic Silverstone circuit. In addition there will be the chance to see and compare a wide range of products for independent living such as wheelchairs, scooters, trikes, hoists, and ramps as well as access to information and expert advice.
The Mobility Roadshow will be an unmissable ‘hands on’ opportunity for drivers with disabilities, passengers who use wheelchairs, and solutions for older non-disabled drivers to continue to drive safely for longer. The Mobility Roadshow also provides opportunities for young and novice drivers with disabilities who are keen to explore all available options for accessible motoring.
Silverstone provides excellent accessibility and spacious exhibition facilities with ample parking on hard-standing surfaces. There will be exclusive access to the pit lane garages for vehicle display and track access, with indoor exhibition space in the impressive Silverstone Wing.
Ann Frye, Chair of Mobility Choice, comments: “We are delighted to be holding the Mobility Roadshow at Silverstone for the first time. In response to visitor feedback, we have chosen this magnificent venue with space to expand the range and choice of mobility products from around the world as well as giving visitors the opportunity to drive on the famous race circuit. Maintaining the show’s focus on independent mobility for everyone, we are working again with NFE Group to deliver an event that we believe will enable anyone with mobility difficulties to find solutions to meet their individual needs.”
