Tumbling Car travels to the UK

Posted on May 2nd, 2017 by GEM Motoring Assist

We’ve teamed up with colleagues at the Sussex Safer Roads Partnership to bring a unique and amazing road safety demonstration opportunity for visitors at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this year. Thanks to a donation from the GEM Road Safety Charity, we’ve been able to bring a ‘tumbling car’ seatbelt demonstrator assembly over from Belgium.

Take a tumble

Climb in, fasten your seatbelt and experience what it feels like to be in a car that’s rolling over and over. We tried it last year in Brussels as part of a Project Edward event. It’s a brilliant way of confirming just how effective a seatbelt can be in preventing death and injury on our roads.

Press invitation! Be one of the first to take a spin in the special ‘Tumbling Car’ seatbelt demonstrator, visiting the UK for the first time at the Goodwood Festival of Speed

GEM Motoring Assist is pleased to join with Sussex Safer Roads Partnership to extend an invitation for journalists visiting the Goodwood Festival of Speed to take a ride in the special ‘Tumbling Car’ seatbelt demonstrator that will be operating at Stand 409. The car, loaned by the Belgian authorities with the support of the GEM Road Safety Charity, gives passengers an experience of just how vital a seatbelt is in a moving car. The Tumbling Car will take passengers for a spin – quite literally – while showing how their seatbelt will hold them in place, even when the car is rotating or hanging upside-down. It’s a spectacular reminder that you should always wear your seatbelt. If you would like to visit our stand for a photo and interview opportunity of this innovative road safety tool, please contact Jo fisher at GEM (jo.fisher@motoringassist.com, 01342 825676). Press Day is Thursday 29 June, and the Tumbling Car will be available on all four days of the Festival.
