Tuk tuk rides coming to Winchester (UK)

ANYONE looking for an exotic mode of travel inWinchester will be pleased to learn thatWinchester City Council has licensed a Thai Tuk-Tuk for private hire.

The three-wheeled vehicle, which is native to Thailand, can carry three passengers, with a maximum speed of 50-60mph.

It is so unusual that the sub-committee had to decide whether it would be eligible for a private hire license. Owner Stuart Pinnock has had the Tuk-Tuk since 2007, but has used it for charity events and special appearances in the past. Now it will be available for weddings, proms, and special occasions.

He said: “It goes down brilliantly at proms. You’ll have people turning up in Lamborghinis and Ferraris but the Tuk-Tuk upstages them.”

He added: “I want to keep it special. I don’t want people thinking ‘oh it’s just a tuk tuk’, and that could happen if I drive it day in day out.”

For more information about the Tuk Tuk, contact Stuart Pinnock on 07595761542, or email infotuktuk4u@yahoo.co.uk.
