Nissan Leaf To Attempt Guinness World Speed Record For Driving Up Goodwood Hill In Reverse

Nissan is planning a World record attempt next week at the Goodwood Festival of speed by driving the famous 1.16-mile Goodwood hillclimb in reverse and as fast as possible. In theory the Leaf goes just as fast backwards as it does forwards, the trick here is to control the car same way when going forward.

The stunt will be attempted by professional stunt driver Terry Grant, who thrilled the crowds at the 2011 Festival of Speed by driving a Nissan JUKE up the hillclimb course on two wheels. If Terry is as good as Nissan believes, then next week there is a new Guinness World Record for the fastest time over a distance of one mile in reverse.
