May 13, 2018: A man has driven a motorised shed more than 100mph.
Owner Kevin Nicks said it felt "marvellous" to break his previous 80mph record at Pendine Sands in Carmarthensire, Wales.
Kevin clocked 101mph on Saturday afternoon – a new record in what is believed to be the only road legal shed in the world.
"It couldn’t have gone better, I’m so happy," the 53-year-old gardener told the BBC .
Kevin, from Chipping Norton in Oxfordshire, spent more than £13,000 building his wooden wheels.
Turbo-charged, the shed is kitted out with a 400 brake horsepower engine, which is more powerful than some sports cars.
Kevin explained he had the idea of driving a shed around in 2015 when his old Volkswagen Passat sat on his driveway, broken.
The father-of-one spent the next 12 months (and £5,000, to begin with) making a shed roadworthy so he could "take his daughter to school and pop to the shops".
He added: "I did everything – built the shed, connected the engine, built the chassis."
A while later, Kevin was entering speed events and in 2016 got into the Guinness Book of Records after hitting 80mph.
Now, his revamped, fine-tuned shed hits 100mph with ease thanks to £8,000 worth of additions and a souped-up Audi RS4 engine.
Kevin talked of a "magical moment" at Pendine on Saturday.
"I’ve spent all winter doing it up and putting in a new engine and suspension, it’s so quick off the mark," he said.
"I had no idea how fast it would go - and it went well. It felt comfortable at 100mph, I was pleased."
He’s joined a host of other land speed record breakers who have taken everything from go-karts to three-wheelers to exceptional paces.
