Land Rover and Terry Grant smashed a world record at this week’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, with a two-wheel speed run in the new Range Rover Sport SVR. Terry’s 2:24.5 run up the famous Hillclimb 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 up 60mph on Goodwood’s famous hill climb as he set the new Guinness World Record time.
Terry snatched the record 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 Range Rover Sport SVR is a 575hp performance SUV, capable of 0-60mph in 4.3 seconds and a top speed of 174mph – with four wheels on the road, at least. The Range Rover Sport only required one modification for the world record run, a tweak to its differential to allow the car to deliver more power to the two wheels on the ground – both of which will be pumped up to 90PSI.
Terry Grant is a multiple world-record holder, with 25 Guinness World Records already to his name, and with this latest record, Terry has bested a 2:55 run that he himself set at Goodwood in 2011.
