Is it possible to drive a Range Rover across the UK faster than the sun?
Here's an old Top Gear challenge with a twist
Many moons ago on a show called Top Gear, Jeremy Clarkson set out to see if he could outrun the sun in a Jaguar XJ. On the shortest day of the year in February, Clarkson set off from the most westerly point (Land's end) of the UK and attempted to reach the most easterly point (Ness point) before the sunset that evening.
However, this YouTuber has decided to one-up Jeremy and the BBC by attempting to drive from the UK's most northern point (John O' Groats) to the most southern point (Land's end) – and he doesn't have long to do it. Joel from the YouTube channel 'It's Joel' has decided to do this on the world's longest day of the year which is in June – giving him just 17 hours before the sun sets.
His car of choice is a big Range Rover Vogue which needs to cover over 800 miles in the next 15-17 hours, otherwise he has failed and spent a lof of money on fuel for no reason.
Without further ado then, let's see if he can manage it:
