Tyne Tunnel 2K

We were delighted to be a bronze sponsor for this year’s Tyne Tunnel 2K - the fastest wheelchair race on the planet. Taking place on Friday 11 September, it was a thrilling night-time spectacle where the world’s elite wheelchair athletes reached speeds in excess of 50mph under the Tyne.

TT2 Ltd, the company that operates the Tyne Tunnels hosted the event in the northbound route, with 30 of the world’s best wheelchair racers competing to win the prestige event.

Six-time Paralympic gold medallist Dave Weir (also known as “the Weirwolf”) retained his title as the men’s champion of the Tyne Tunnel 2K, winning with a time of 00:04:07.
