Rainer Zietlow, camera man Marius Biela and blogger Sam Roach have set a new world record for the fastest drive between South Africa to Nordkapp in Norway in their Volkswagen Touareg V6 TDI equipped with Goodyear-Wrangler HP All Weather tyres. The team drove Cape-to-Cape 2.0 in less than 10 days [9 days, 4 hours and 8 minutes], conquering more than 19,000 kilometers on one set of Goodyear Wrangler tyres.
The team crossed 21 countries: South Africa, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Tanzania, Kenya, Ethiopia, Sudan, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Turkey, Bulgaria, Serbia, Hungary, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Finland and finally Norway. The team flew the Volkswagen Touareg V6 TDI from Amman, Jordan to Adana in Turkey for the shortest flight over Syria.
