Taif school principal congratulates compatriots on Pakistan National Day

Qaisar Khan, principal of Pakistan International School, Taif, and management, faculty and staff, congratulate Pakistan on the occasion of its national day.
March 23 is the day to remember the endless endeavors of Quaid e Azam and his team who took on the treacherous and deceitful conspiracies against the Muslims of India to attain an independent piece of land to live and practice their religion freely.
Pakistan came into being for a perpetual existence for a specific divine cause and we, the Pakistani people, make a corporal nation, which will be against any calamity and wicked intentions to keep our flag soaring high.
Holding the flag of Pakistan high, we aim to provide an environment that inculcates patriotism while giving students equal opportunities to develop their knowledge, skills and abilities to optimum level.
We wish Pakistan and the Muslim Ummah prosperity, peace and stability. Long live Pakistan.
— Qaiser Khan, principal of Pakistan International School, Taif

Land Rover, Terry Grant smash world record

Land Rover and international stunt driver Terry Grant smashed a world record at this week’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, with a two-wheel speed run in the new Range Rover Sport SVR. Grant’s 2:24.5 run up the famous hillclimb broke Grant’s old record for a mile traveled in a car on two wheels, set in 2011, by more than 30 seconds.
Grant flipped the Range Rover Sport SVR up on to two wheels with the use of a ramp, before hitting speeds of up 60mph on Goodwood’s famous hillclimb as he set the new Guinness World Record time.
Grant snatched the record in a dramatic last gasp attempt on Sunday afternoon, having attempted four runs earlier in the weekend, none of which Grant managed to complete.
The Range Rover Sport SVR is a 575hp performance SUV, capable of 0-60mph in 4.3 seconds and a top speed of 174mph — with four wheels on the road, at least. The Range Rover Sport only required one modification for the world record run, a tweak to its differential to allow the car to deliver more power to the two wheels on the ground — both of which were pumped up to 90PSI.
Grant is a multiple world-record holder, with 25 Guinness World Records already to his name, and with this latest record, Grant has bested a 2:55 run that he himself set at Goodwood in 2011.
Stunt driver Grant said: “It really shouldn’t be underestimated how difficult a two-wheeled speed run like this is; you are always fighting to keep the car balanced right on the edge, as it tries to tip either one way or the other. You need to be conscious of everything, from the camber of the road to the strength of the wind. Thankfully, conditions were excellent and the Range Rover Sport SVR was the perfect precision tool for the job.”
The world record was not the only amazing Land Rover moment of the Festival of Speed, as 70 historic and important Land Rovers took to the hill in what was the largest batch of cars to ever tackle the famous route in one go. From 1948 to 2018, the parade of cars celebrated 70 years of one of Britain’s most iconic automotive brands.
