PictureWheelchair-user Steve Tarrant, 55 from King’s Stag in Dorset, has achieved an international marshalling award for his 30-years of endurance motorsport officiating – made possible by ownership of an ‘orange racing style’ TGA Vita mobility scooter.

Steve was involved in a highly publicised accident in 2000 when an F1 racing car collided with him at over 100mph whilst he was marshalling on the finish line at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Steve lost a leg and suffered multiple injuries however he managed to miraculously pull through this terrible accident and has since continued to marshal internationally at events such as the Le Mans 24 Hours. In addition to his motorsport commitments, Steve has been a medal bearer at the Olympics and Paralympics and received a Big Society Award from David Cameron. He owns a TGA Vita 4 to remain mobile at various motorsport events and has attempted two world records on a Breeze mobility scooter with the support of TGA.
