Fore-wheel drive: Record-breaking 'hole in one' as David Coulthard catches 300-yard drive in his car at 120mph
By Ray Massey
This is the remarkable moment David Coulthard caught a golf ball in his car while travelling at 120mph.
The F1 star set one of the more unusual world records with the help of separate piece of skillful driving - from Jake Shepherd.
The ball was launched off the tee by the pro golfer, and travelled around 300yds before dropping into the vehicle as the F1 driver skillfully tracked its flight and manoeuvred the £200,000 Mercedes-Benz sports car underneath it.
The bizarre stunt secured the sporting pair the world record for the furthest golf shot caught in a moving car - and in only their second attempt of the day.
The record was set last month at Dunsfold Aerodrome, Surrey where the BBC show Top Gear is filmed.
The amazing feat - already dubbed a 'fore-wheel drive' - was not only caught on camera, but also independently verified by a Guinness World Record adjudicator who confirmed the achievement secured the title of furthest golf shot caught in a moving car.
