Black Beauty Takes the Bridge

NZ A1 Grand Prix driver Jonny Reid has set a new record for the fastest crossing of the Auckland Harbour Bridge. Reid crossed the bridge seven times, reaching speeds of over 160km/h. Police traffic controllers had difficulty clocking his top speed due to the low height of NZ’s A1GP car Black Beauty. “I absolutely thrived on it,” said Reid of the drive. “It was a very unique experience which you don’t come across every day.” The record-breaking stunt was staged to promote the sixth leg of the A1GP, held in Taupo on January 21.
