    Breaking the world blind land speed record

    Think about travelling at 178.5mph. Pretty fast, ain't it? Now, imagine doing it blind, being alone in control of the vehicle. That's what Mike Newman did recently, achieving an average speed of 167.32mph to beat his existing blind land speed record.

    Of course, Mike had the aid of computer gadgetry, provided by the likes of Scan, to keep him on the right track, but his feat is amazing regardless.

    We hope you'll join HEXUS in congratulating Mike, who is dedicating his record breaking feat to VISION 2020.

    Are you sure someone just didn't hold a fan in front of him and get a couple of mates to rock the car?

    J/k, good on him
