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.
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!
