Nissan Juke NISMO RS sets new two-wheeled record

The Goodwood Festival of Speed took place last weekend, playing host to one of the most terrifying and exciting world record attempts of all time!

Stuntman Terry Grant took to the track in the all-new Nissan Juke NIMSO RS in an attempt to break his own world record for the fastest mile travelled on two wheels in a four-wheeled vehicle. He was allowed to make six attempts at the previous record of two minutes and fifty-five seconds – previously set by himself at the 2011 Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Terry smashed his own record on his first attempt, recording an amazing time of just two minutes and ten seconds, shaving forty-five seconds off of his previous world record.

“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," said Grant. “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 Nissan Juke NISMO RS was the perfect vehicle for the attempt, with its large frame making it easy to balance on two wheels and the 218bhp 1.6-litre Direct Injection Gasoline Turbo (DIG-T 218) engine providing plenty of power.
