A BUSINESSMAN from Huddersfield will have to wait in his bid to break the world blindfold land speed record.
Curtis Paxman, 29, director of brewing supplies firm Brewfitt had expected to smash the record today at Elvington Airfield in York.
But the bid - destined to raise thousands of pounds for charity - has had to be postponed.
There are worries over safety cover for the record bid involving Mr Paxman and other drivers.
Organisers now hope to get a new date in the next few weeks.
Mr Paxman said: "It is disappointing but the safety crew are vital and we all want to have the right people and equipment in place."
The record is currently held by Mike Newman from Cheshire, who achieved an average speed of 144.7mph in a Jaguar.
Mr Paxman will make his attempt in a Formula 1 Tyrrell racing car, capable of speeds of more than 200mph.
He is a keen motorsports enthusiast and hopes to raise a minimum of £3,700 for charity through the challenge.
