Scooter sitters go for win

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - It's called a Scooter Sit-a-Thon. The object is to sit on a scooter as long as you can with the chance to win it.

Team Charlotte Motorsports on Freedom Drive hosted the event which lasted from Saturday until Monday afternoon.

Three people started out by sitting on three different Honda Metropolitan scooters inside the store. The rules kept the contestants from moving their hands off the handlebars or feet off the floorboards of the scooter.

One contestant didn't make it through the weekend. We caught up with the other two Monday morning.

Drew and Shawn lasted about 7 hours on Monday before Drew moved his hand up to scratch his nose. The contest was over.

The winner, Shawn says he's going to give the scooter to his high school aged son who's made straight A's in school and wanted a scooter.
