Two wheels good, four wheels bad

For those that saw it, Terry Grant's two-wheel drive up the hillclimb in a Nissan Juke at the Goodwood Festival of Speed was a sight to behold - and now you can see the spectacle in its entirety.

With a mixture of impeccable car control and showmanship, the stunt driver thrilled the Goodwood crowds and claimed a new Guinness World Record by covering the one-mile course in 2 min 55 secs*.
And to prove it wasn't a fluke, Grant and the Juke successfully completed the course no fewer than five times, sometimes with passengers on board.

Although Grant made it look easy, it was anything but.

"It was really hairy... bloody hard work," he confessed afterwards. "If you know what you're doing, driving a car on two wheels in a straight line is comparatively easy. But the Goodwood course has corners, inclines and obstacles... there are trees and walls everywhere. I nearly rolled it on every run."

Unsurprisingly, there have been a number of video clips appearing on YouTube but now you can see Terry's run in all its glory. Enjoy.
