Blind Driver Sets Speed Record in a Maserati

He's never seen a car, or a road for that matter, but a South African man became the fastest blind driver in the world last week, when he hit 167mph in a Maserati V8 GranSport. The 33-year-old, along with a sighted navigator, made the run on an airstrip near Botswana. Though no insurer would agree to insure the attempt, it was certified by the Guinness Book. Next up, he plans to fly a Cessna through the Arc d'Triomphe (well, maybe over it).
