Graham Haslam and Mark Cameron are as we go to press attempting to set a Guinness World Record for driving an electric golf cart from Pattaya to Phuket, a distance of approximately 1,400km. Te real purpose is to raise money for Phuket charity, Phuket Has Been Good To us, and before they left the Hard Rock Cafe in Pattaya they had already reached the THB1 million mark.
On a recent test drive from Nonthaburi to Lotus Valley golf course, the Golf Cart Tailand made buggie with a set of six 8-volt Trojan batteries provided for the World Record attempt, delivered an impressive 95 kilometers per day. With the trip covering 1,400km through nine provinces, the daily charge is essential to complete the challenge in approximately 24 days.
They hope to reach Phuket by April 8th. To send them a donation visit www.phukethasbeengoodtous.org
