Land Rover enters record books for fastest car on two wheels

Land Rover enters record books for fastest car on two wheels

- Land Rover and Terry Grant smashed the Guinness World Record for the fastest mile in a car on two wheels at the weekend’s Goodwood’s Festival of Speed

- The 2:24.5 min run was achieved in a 575bhp Range Rover Sport SVR that topped a 100 kmph on the record-breaking run

While most were busy smashing speed records at the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed, Land Rover decided to try breaking a new record in a unique kind of way. With Terry Grant behind the wheel of the new Range Rover Sport SVR, Land Rover smashed the Guinness World Record for the fastest mile in a car on two wheels.  Terry’s 2:24.5 min run up the famous hill climb broke Terry’s old record for a mile travelled in a car on two wheels, set in 2011, by more than 30 seconds.

Terry Grant flipped the Range Rover Sport SVR up on to two wheels with the use of a ramp, before hitting speeds of almost 100 kmph on Goodwood’s famous hill climb as he set the new Guinness World Record time. The record was broken in a dramatic last gasp attempt on Sunday afternoon, having attempted four runs earlier in the weekend, none of which Terry managed to complete.

The world record was not the only amazing Land Rover moment of the Festival of Speed, as 70 historic and important Land Rovers took to the hill in what was the largest batch of cars to ever tackle the famous route in one go. From 1948, to 2018, the parade of cars celebrated 70 years of one of Britain’s most iconic automotive brands.
