Sir George visited Quad Bike, at Quarley Business Park, as part of his series of visits to local wealth creators.
"Ken Akehurst started this business a couple of years ago, to top up his pension, and it has really taken off. With his wife, they now have four employees and a thriving business supplying dealers with quadbikes, scooters and other alternative forms of transport."
"One of the issues we discussed was how these vehicles are classified for tax and insurance. I plan to take this up with Ministers to bring some clarity into what is a blurred area. The four wheelers were much cheaper than conventional cars, and had good fuel consumption."

Sir George also met Josh Bulpitt who has a quad bike and has started racing it.
