Ben went completely blind in his mid-thirties. At the start of his fifties, he wants to fulfil his childhood dream: to take part in a motorcycle race across Lake Gairdner, a salt lake in the South East of Australia. Together with the former Grand Prix champion Kevin Magee, he hopes to set a new record.
