Bentley is backing a charity project by two engineers who will attempt to cross the Atlantic in a pedalo – in a record-breaking time of less than six weeks.
A pedalo-powered Atlantic crossing has only ever been achieved once before, in 1994, and that took 111 days. Mike Sayer and Mark Byass aim to do it in 38.
The pair hope to raise £250,000, which will be shared between the Motor Neurone Disease Association and the Make A Wish Foundation, a charity for children and young people with life-threatening illnesses.
The project will be carbon neutral, with solar power generating the electricity required for essentials such as de-salination of water – and to power their iPods, which have been loaded with 30,000 songs to help them pass the time.
