  • Stuntman beats his existing record at Goodwood Festival of Speed for fastest mile on two wheels
  • Four years after his original record, new marker set in Juke NISMO RS on first attempt

Stuntman Terry Grant has broken his own world record for the fastest mile travelled on two wheels in a four-wheeled vehicle – the sporty version of the Nissan Juke, the NISMO RS.

Grant has six attempts at travelling up the famous Goodwood hill climb course during last weekend’s Festival of Speed, but broke the record on the first go, achieving a time of 2m10s.

That eclipses his previous record, set in a Nissan Juke at the Festival of Speed in 2011, of 2m55s and sets a new benchmark for the unique challenge.

Grant said: “I was shocked at how much faster the Juke NISMO RS was and to take 45 seconds off what was already a quick time, was unbelievable.”

“To break it by so much on my first attempt was a great way to kick off the weekend and I’m looking forward to seeing if I can go faster.”

The Juke NISMO RS is the hot new performance version of Nissan’s little cross-over, with years of racetrack heritage taken from the enigmatic NISMO brand combining the Juke with impressive power credentials, aggressive styling and optimum handling capabilities.

The car’s two-wheeled antics was one of many highlights from the Goodwood Festival of Speed, which also featured the global debut of the Juke-R 2.0 concept – the ultimate performance version of the Juke.
