A two-wheel-drive Range Rover…

Range Rover Sport SVR at Goodwood

GOODWOOD’S annual Festival of Speed was another glorious weekend to celebrate the cream of two and four wheels.

But bet you didn’t expect a Range Rover on two wheels…

Land Rover decided to do something a bit different this weekend, and took the Range Rover Sport SVR, complete with its 4WD and 542bhp, up the hilllclimb on just two wheels.

Well, for most of it anyway.

In the hands of stunt king Terry Grant, the Sport SVR negotiated the start, round the bend up to the straight which goes past the house all on two wheels, giving spectators a very unusual view of the floorpan of the SVR (or its roof, depending which side you were standing).

Terry kept up the two-wheel stuff to the left-hander at the end of the straight, dropping back on to four wheels, throwing a donut or three and blasting off to the finish.

A two-wheel-drive Rangie…just doesn’t sound right!
