You could say that stunt driver Terry Grant knows the Goodwood hill so well, he knows it backwards. That was certainly the case in 2012, when he set a new reverse record in a Nissan Leaf.

Video: Watch the Nissan Leaf set a FOS record
Being electric, the Leaf can go as fast in reverse as it can forwards, and Grant reached speeds of up to 70mph while setting the record. On the fastest run of that weekend, he averaged 55mph over the course, setting a time of 1 minute 37 seconds. And, as you can see in the video, he adopted the post of all confident reverses with one hand over the back of the passenger seat.
