Need for speed: Blind biker defies odds to set new 167 mph world record
London: A blind biker has set a new world speed record of 167 mph that he reached on his motorcycle to beat the previous fastest time of 164 mph at Elvington Airfield in North Yorkshire.
According to metro.co.uk, Stuart Gunn, 39, revealed that he was over the moon and absolutely ecstatic, adding that it proved that if people were blind or had a disability, it did not limit life.
The 39-year-old broke his back in two places, shattered several ribs and his shoulder and was paralysed across the right side of his body in a horror road accident 11 years ago, the report said.
