The World’s Fastest Reverse Driver Hits 56MPH

Because driving in reverse is easy if you don’t care what you hit, this is a 60-second documentary (almost 3X the attention span of a normal human) highlighting the record breaking work of Scott Burner (great name), who holds the record for fastest mile in reverse, with a time of 1 minute 15.18 seconds driving a late-model Corvette. The fastest he’s ever driven in reverse is 56MPH. For reference, I don’t feel safe at speeds over 50MPH even going forwards. I’m surprised cars can even go that fast in reverse. I feel like there’s no need. I mean except for setting records like this, which again, absolutely no need.

Keep going for this video, as well as a clip from Scott’s record breaking reverse run.
