Piggott & Whitfield join our the growing list of Mike Newman supporters

Piggott & Whitfield a successful privately owned building services company that offers national coverage join Mike Newmans Team as a sponsor to help Mike Newman gain his two world records. Rob Speakman, Managing Director who is a keen motor sports fan said that he has been following Mike Newman's progress for some time and he and his company are very happy to support the world record attempts and Mike Newman to become the first blind person to hold both land and water speed records simultaneously. Piggott & Whitfield who came to the rescue in 2010 in providing much needed security barriers at Pendine Sands when Mike Newman had his last land speed attempt, wish Mike every success in his double world record ambitions and will be down in Torquay on the 5th of September, later this year, to see Mike race his power boat in to the record books.
