Turkish blind pop singer Metin Senturk Breaks Speed Racing Guinness World Record

Turkish blind pop singer Metin Senturk has defied the odds by breaking the world speed record for driving by a visually-impaired person, according to Guinness World Records.

Senturk reached a new record of 181.44 miles per hour, against the wind in his Ferrari F430, with a 600 horsepower engine.

The event took place at the runway of an airport in the eastern Turkish town of Urfa.

During the record attempt, Senturk was given verbal instructions by Volkan Isik, a former rally driver, who followed behind him in another car.

Isik was Senturk’s eyes, yelling out directions to Senturk who was wearing an earpiece in his helmet as he drove.

Senturk’s wife was present, watching her husband on the sidelines.
