JAGUAR BROKE A WORLD RECORD WITH THIS TINY ELECTRIC BOAT

Jaguar’s battery-powered V20E boat just broke a maritime speed record.

Peter Dredge, the co-founder of Jaguar Vector, piloted the boat at speeds of 88.62 miles per hour across eight miles of the Coniston Water lake in Cumbria, England. His speeds broke the previous record of 76.8 mph set ten years ago.

SPRINGBOKS SLUMP TO SEVENTH IN WORLD RANKINGS

South Africa were ranked sixth before this one-off Test, sandwiched between fifth-placed Scotland and Wales in seventh.

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane believes CAF Champions League football is part of the club’s “legacy”, and says the team have to deal with the pressure that comes with it.

While the Brazilians’ 15 PSL rivals are preparing for the final league game of the campaign next weekend followed by a hard-earned break, Downs will again be working through the holiday period as they contest continental football.

The Brazilians kicked off their Group C campaign on Saturday with a 1-1 draw against holders Wydad Casablanca, the team that dethroned Downs last term after knocking the PSL giants out at the quarter-finals.

Mosimane’s men are next [...]

2018 King of the Hill: Times tumble, Nissan dominates

The 2018 Jaguar Simola Hillclimb delivered an enthralling mix of thrills and excitement, with some stunning new records being set on the Simola Hill – both amongst the competitors’ times, as well as the number of spectators attending the three-day event.

More than 17 000 people attended the ninth edition of the Hillclimb, held in Knysna from 4 to 6 May, about 2000 more than last year’s record-breaking attendance.

Records tumbled

When the action drew to a close, all-new King of the Hill records had been established in each of the three categories, but the times between many of the top contenders were closer than ever, which kept the fans on their toes right to the [...]
