CAM WILSON ANNOUNCES…

2nd GUINNESS WORLD RECORD ATTEMPT

Owner of Slideways Go Karting Australia and V8 Ute driver Cam Wilson has announced a second Guinness World Record Attempt to raise money for Huntingtons Queensland.

Cam will drive a go kart non-stop for 24 hours, alongside five teammates in February to set a new record, while raising awareness and funds for the association.

Long-standing Slideways staff members and Cam's close mates, Dan Tuite, Tim Harris, Daniel Goddard, Chris Hinton and Nathan Roach will join the mission.

Cam tragically lost his father, Murray, to Huntington's earlier this year and like many other family members of those with the disease, he lives with the 50% prospect of having inherited the defective gene. Extremely grateful for the support Huntingtons Queensland provided to the Wilson family over the ten years following Murray's diagnosis, Cam is determined to give back as much as he can.

At his first overnight marathon record attempt earlier this year, Cam set a new record of 604km for "Karting - Greatest distance travelled in 24 hours indoors (individual)", and raised over $20,000 for Huntingtons Queensland.

The new world record attempt will take place at Slideways Go Karting Gold Coast at Nerang from noon on Tuesday 17 February.

The Slideways team aims to raise $48,000.

We invite you to get behind Cam and the team. Please spread the word among your family and friends!
