The Nissan Leafhas set a record as the fastest car over a measured mile in reverse.
Driven by professional stunt driver, Terry Grant the Nissan Leaf raced backwards up the Goodwood hillclimb course during the , covering the distance in 1m 37.02s at an average speed of 55 mph.
Having set the record on Friday, the opening day of the Festival, Terry went on to smash his time on Saturday and Sunday, shaving an amazing 26 seconds off Friday's time.
This is Terry's second world record: at last year's Festival he set a record by driving a Nissan Juke up the hill on two wheels. Which, I suppose is one way of reducing tire wear.
