Blind driver beats world speed record


A Turkish pop singer has set a new world speed record for an unaccompanied blind person.

Metin Senturk drove a Ferrari at an average speed of 181 miles an hour at an airport in eastern Turkey.

He was followed in another car by former rally driver Volkan Isik, who gave him instructions through an earpiece inside his helmet.
