SA man helps break world record for fastest drive from Nordkapp, Norway to Cape

A team called the Longest Drive have broken the Cape-to-Cape record, driving from the southern tip of Africa (Cape Agulhas) to the northern tip of Europe (Nordkapp in Norway) - in a Porsche Cayenne no less.

The three-man team caught the globe's attention with their aim to drive between extreme geographical points of the world.

The previous world record was 9 days and 4 hours, and they managed the trip in just 8 days 21 hours and 3 minutes.

South African team member Shaun Neil described the grueling journey he went through with his team, over a distance of approximately 17 450 kilometres.

He says each person drove for an average of six hours each, while they encountered potholes in Ethiopia, and military check points in Egypt along their adventurous endurance race.

The drive was in aid of Farm Africa - which helps farming families in East Africa.
