Paddy Kennedy passes a speed van during his world record attempt
Paddy Kennedy broke a world record on Sunday morning for the longest distance travelled going backwards in a tractor but he also happened to pass a speed van during his attempt.
He posted a picture today on Facebook of him passing a speed van during his world record attempt and he asked: "I wonder how many points do you get for going backwards."
The Carlow man reversed a trailer from the Carlow IT pitches on Kilkenny Road to Mount Leinster Rangers GAA club - a distance of approximately 30km.
The previous distance was 20.16km and Paddy live streamed his successful attempt on Facebook, which has been viewed over 18,000 times.
Paddy said: "Hi folks just want to say a quick thank you to you all for supporting me today delighted to get through it safe and sound."
