Blind Turkish singer sets 182 mph land speed record
Of course, at first sight, 182 mph is not a world record. But for a blind man, such a speed is more than just a record. This amazing number was hit by Metin Senturk, a Turkish singer, while driving a Ferrari F430 at the Urfa airport in eastern Turkey.
He entered the Guinness World Records with a top speed of 292.89 km/h (181.9 mph), breaking the previous record of 284 kph (176 mph), held by a British bank manager.
"I don’t think there are any words to describe this feeling. I am really happy. It was really hard, like a dance with death," said Senturk.
