Blind Belgian breaks speed record PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 01 September 2011 16:55


Belgian Luc Costermans has broken the world blind road speed record, on an airstrip in France.  Mr Costermans topped 308.78km/h (192 mph) while driving a Lamborghini Gallardo supercar at Istres, near Marseille, in southern France.  Mr Costermans thanked his co-pilot Guillaume Roman, saying: "I'm very, very happy. It's a team effort."  Mr Costermans took the record from Briton Mike Newman, whose BMW M5 reached 268km/h three years ago.

Mr Costermans, 43, was blinded in an accident four years go. He hit the top speed in two runs in the borrowed car. He dedicated his effort to the Formula 1 racing driver Philippe treiff, who has been a tetraplegic since suffering an accident in a Grand Prix in razil in 1989.  Two years ago Mr Costermans completed a tour of France piloting a light aeroplane.  He was accompanied by an instructor and a navigator.
