Hilarious. I did this yesterday too for the speed racer, and also have a video I need to edit and upload. --davidc 20:00, 30 September 2009 (UTC)

I am now almost falling off my chair laughing. That's awesome! I await your video with interest... I haven't had time to edit ours yet. --macronencer 20:37, 30 September 2009 (UTC)
Excellent video David! I like the way it's presented, and I love the safety belt advice :) I think you did really well to hold the camera so steady while driving: I don't think I would have liked to try that, to be honest. Your car sounds a bit more powerful than mine, so I wasn't surprised that you made it in the end. Or was that just a noisy exhaust? LOL! I found it possible to reach the speed from both directions, but only just - I never quite made it going South, we succeeded while going North in the end. I think maybe the darkness was to our advantage because there was less traffic about and it was easier to see oncoming headlights due to the contrast. --macronencer 17:53, 1 October 2009 (UTC)
wouldn't it be funny if the other car was us! we arrived at about 20:40 I think. we saw a car parked in a siding near the hash and jokingly wondered if it might be a geohasher. the car was empty. -- sermoa 20:05, 1 October 2009 (UTC)
I think I was almost in Wales by that time :-). I did wonder when seeing your expedition whether the car in my last attempt was you. Regarding the direction, I found I couldn't do it from the south, the bends before the hashpoint were too much for me to handle. The straight northern approach was the only way to do it. The car was some crappy rental Astra, but it got there in the end! --davidc 21:04, 1 October 2009 (UTC)
we managed it from the south, but mike did drive insanely fast around the bend! you probably heard me screaming in the video!! -- sermoa 22:26, 1 October 2009 (UTC)
