It’s ready, sheddy, go for record
A souped-up motorised shed has broken its own land speed record on a Welsh beach as it hit 100mph.
The Fastest Shed smashed its previous 80mph (129km/h) record for the fastest shed at a land speed event at Pendine Sands in Carmarthenshire on Saturday.
Owner Kevin Nicks said it was “marvellous” to hit 101mph (160 km/h) in what he said was the only road legal motorised shed in the world.
“It couldn’t have gone better, I’m so happy,” said the 53-year-old gardener.
Mr Nicks, from Oxfordshire, spent £13,000 creating the shed on wheels, which now boasts a turbocharged 400 brake horsepower engine.
