TGA’s Tim Ross remembers racing against Le Mans 24 hours champion Win Percy…..at Scalextrics!

TGA and our market leading mobility scooters have supported the Mobility Roadshow for over 20 years and enjoyed so many memorable moments.




Difficult to highlight one from so many and not forgetting all the end users we have helped at the show, however I guess all the celebrities I have had the privilege of meeting will always bring back special memories. Over the years I have chatted to so many such as The Duke of Edinburgh, Sir Stirling Moss, Sharon Davis, Noel Edmonds, Vicki Butler-Henderson, Simon Weston…..the list goes on. Nevertheless I reckon Scalextric racing with motorsport legend Winston ‘Win’ Percy during the 2004 event will really stick in my memory.

Win was the winner of the Le Mans 24 hours in 1987 and won the British Touring Car Championship three times so I was definitely up against it on our custom built TGA circuit! He was such a great guy to invite onto our stand for the day and was a real pleasure to introduce to our customers. The whole show was a resounding success for us and had a real buzz about the place as ever.

As the Mobility Roadshow is the largest and original consumer mobility show, every year the whole TGA team is able to meet countless end users and help them regain care-free independence. Well done to the Roadshow team for delivering such a unique and special show every year since 1983, Happy Birthday!”
