    I bet your Gran couldn’t go faster than this Kent veteran – especially in a 400bhp BMW M3 coupe.

    Adrenaline-junkie Dulcibella King-Hall wanted to celebrate her birthday in style, and in true petrolhead fashion, headed straight for Brands Hatch and the sensational new BMW M3 coupe.

    But Miss King-Hall – who has always had a love of cars since the Second World War – turned 107 last Saturday, making her the oldest person to complete a lap at Brands.

    And despite her advanced years, Miss King-Hall was well up for it, saying “why shouldn’t I? Don’t you like it? I have a driving licence. I can drive any vehicle.

    “I like the feeling of the vehicle going vroom.”

    After hitting a 108mph top speed going into Paddock Bend, she gamely joked that her four laps of the famous 1.6-mile course “could have been faster”.


  2. awesome that she actually hit 108mph.

    I was opening this thread and expecting to read that she just pussy footed around the whole thing in like 9 mins.
  3. I was hoping she was the one driving
  4. oh shit i was lied to!
  5. "I have a driving licence. I can drive any vehicle."

    but the pics dont show her driving


  6. "We can't bust heads like we used to, but we have our ways. One trick is to tell them stories that don't go anywhere. Like the time I took the fairy to Shelbyville. I needed a new heel for my shoe so I decided to go to Morganville, which is what they called Shelbyville in those days. So I tied an onion to my belt, which was the style at the time. Now to take the ferry cost a nickel, and in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on them. Give me five bees for a quarter you'd say. Now where were we, oh ya. The important thing was that I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn't have white onions because if the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones."
