Before the half-term break, the extraordinary 'Super Human, Mike Newman' visited our STEM Centre to claim his incredible, upgraded race car!

Born with a remarkable ability to conquer challenges despite being completely blind, Mike is a true inspiration, holding an impressive nine World Records; he currently holds the title for the fastest blind man on land and water!


The hard work and dedication of our talented Motor Vehicle Accident Repair (Paint) students truly shone as they spent months passionately restoring the car's body. It's now in tip-top shape, ready to support the fastest blind man on the planet as he embarks on his exhilarating adventures!


Mike said: "I'd like to offer a heartfelt thanks to Bolton College for doing a fantastic job on our cars - this is the second one they're repaired and their work is top quality. I'm absolutely overwhelmed with the effort that has gone into it."
