It’s ready, sheddy, go for record

The Sunday Post (Newcastle) - - NEWS -

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.
