Since 1993, the Goodwood Festival of Speed has been the place to be for epic car stunts and hillclimbs. The 1.16 mile track in West Sussex, England is the birthplace of jaw-dropping world records-- and this year was no different.
Stunt driver Terry Grant challenged his four-year-old Guinness World Record for the quickest mile driven on two wheels. The old record that stood at 2 minutes and 55 seconds was completely annihilated. Clocking an average speed of 30mph, Grant hit the mile mark in just 2 minutes and 10 seconds, navigating nine turns and a 300-foot elevation change.
The record-setting ride was Grant's first attempt of the day. He six scheduled trials just in case, but clearly didn't need them. His Nissan Juke RS Nismo wiggled here and there but maintained remarkable balance. Check out the incredible feat below.
Grant, who currently holds 20 World Records, commented on his performance post-climb: "To break [the record] by so much on my first attempt was a great way to kick off the weekend and I’m looking forward to seeing if I can go faster".
