It has now been confirmed that the a TVR Sagaris, driven by expert stunt driver Terry Grant, has made it into the Guinness Book of Records. TVR have confirmed that the popular international stunt driving ace used his new Sagaris to break the Guinness World Record for consecutive and uninterrupted doughnuts (360 on-the-spot spins in a car), previously set by Dale Morrison in 2005. Grant coaxed the standard road-going Sagaris and its Yokohama tyres to a superb count of 71 doughnuts to snatch the record.
Jubilant after his success, to be aired later in the year to a global audience, Grant was quick to praise his crew and sponsors. "I'm a bit dizzy now," he quipped, "but the car has been amazing. Absolutely faultless. Thanks to my team and to the TVR factory for all their help, and a huge thanks for Yokohama for supplying the perfect tyre for the job; it takes something special to survive that level of abuse." Having broken the world record for consecutive doughnuts, Grant then proceeded to use one of his Legend race cars to set a new Guinness World Record for the most consecutive spins whilst standing on the roof, using no kind of restraining or steadying device.
Now with a staggering 15 car control records under his belt, Grant is still looking forward to pushing the boundaries of performance driving.
