Terry Grant's two-wheel F-Type hillclimb

Who saw this crazy hillclimb at the Goodwood Festival of Speed by Terry Grant in a F-Type?!

It might have been one of the slowest runs of all time but I think we can let it slide from the face that it was done on two wheels. Unbelievable driving!

I can't imagine how how it must be to keep a car balance like that especially on turns among a crowd like you'd find at the hill climb. They must've done a lot of test runs.

Yeah I have no idea how he was able to do it for that long. I'd love to see footage of him practicing hahaha.

TBH, they should get back to showing off cool tech and development in the industry in action.
These stunts are cool but have no place at somewhere like Goodwood.

I think there's room for both but I'd also like to see more tech at festivals like Goodwood.

Agree.

So many things happen behind the scenes when developing these cars that are interesting to us.
More of that being public can go a long way.

XE Project 8 at Goodwood will always be a favorite for me.

I just heard that Jaguar is committed to delivering more performance variants.

No mention of more Project 8 type vehicles but its definitely one step closer!
