Vauxhall has added its support to a paramotor world record attempt.
Two electric Vauxhall Mokka-e cars and two Vivaro-e vans will aid the challenge, which will see biologist and adventurer Sacha Dench attempt to fly around the UK in a fully electric paramotor.
After taking to the skies from Stevenson, near Glasgow, this Thursday (July 1), she will then fly anti-clockwise around the country and attempt to touch back down in Glasgow on August 11.
The attempt will look to break two world records. The first is ‘the first and fastest flight around Britain in a paramotor powered only by renewable energy’ and ‘the most pledges to act on climate change in one month’. The latter applies to Sacha’s call on people to sign up to take one practical action of climate change action. She’s aiming to have 140,001 pledges in total.
Adam Millward, Managing Editor of Guinness World Records said: “Sacha is already a part of the Guinness World Records family, having become the first woman to cross the English Channel by paramotor during her epic “Flight of the Swans” expedition in 2016.
“Given her tenacity and drive, we know she has her sights set on achieving more records, and there’s not many that would bet against someone like Sacha in seeing her goal through! We are delighted to see her once again take to the air in order to fly the flag for nature.”
