Some people have the need: the need for speed. Here we look at four drivers who have driven five very different modes of transport in attempts to enter the record books
Colin Furze, a British plumber, spent three months converting his machine to go nine times faster than the average mobility scooter, which is 13kph. The petrol-powered scooter has a 125cc motorbike engine, five gears and twin exhausts. He is now looking to formally enter the speedy scooter into the record books: “I was told by Guinness that I could modify the engine but I wasn’t allowed to change the appearance in any way, so I couldn’t give it bigger wheels or make it more stable.” Guinness told Furze he has to exceed 100kph.
