FASTEST CAR BLINDFOLDED WORLD RECORD CHALLENGE

 

Welcome to Extreme Motorsport.  We are seeking a group of petrolheads to take on an extreme challenge. The Fastest Car World Record (Blindfolded) .

 

The current world record is held by Mike Newman who achieved a credible 186.12mph in a Porsche 911 GT2 on 24th September 2013.

 

To achieve a new world record we are providing a 200mph Ferrari 458 Challenge Race Car supplied by Rollcentre Racing Team. The challenge is to drive the Ferrari (Blindfolded) as fast as possible over a one mile distance in opposite directions within a given time.

 

The average speed over both runs are calculated and if it is faster than 186.12mph you will become the Fastest Blindfolded Driver on Earth! Full training and the challenge takes place over two days .

 

We have chosen a 2 mile runway at Elvington Airfield in York, (see photo below) for the challenge, as it is longer, wider and flatter than the Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground where Mike Newman achived the current world record.  There are no buildings, no trees, or anything else to crash into at Elvington Airfield, plus a large training tarmac area on the left of the runway.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Ferrari 458 Challenge Race Car is a perfect car for the challenge with all the safety devices expected from a race car, it is also faster than the Porsche GT2, so with a longer distance to get up to speed and a longer braking distance, we are certain that one of our challengers will walk away with a new world record.

The challenge mentor and head coach will lead the training and will be driving the chase car behind the blindfolded drivers who compete for the World Record.

He will be in constant contact with the blindfolded drivers via a pro-comms system wired into his and the challenger's helmets.  Using a military method for driving at night with the lights off, LEFT/CLICK RIGHT/CLICK with each CLICK command being a small turn of the steering wheel, this will guide the challengers through the one mile zone as straight as possible.

 

In theory, this method sounds easy, but in reality, the brain can think you are driving straight, when you are actually veering left or right and possibly driving off the runway.  This challenge isn't easy and not for the faint hearted.

 

If driving blindfolded in a Ferrari isn't scary enough for you?  How about riding blindfolded on a motorbike.  The current blindfolded World Record is 164.87mph held by Billy Baxter (UK) 2nd August 2003.

 

We are preparing a special Ducati 999 racebike designed to beat the current record.
