  3. Multiple world speed record holder, Zef Eisenberg to front brand-new ‘Speed Freaks’ television show which will make its debut on Wednesday 7 August on ITV4 at 9.00pm.

    The first 6-part TV series will be broadcast weekly thereafter following daredevil Zef Eisenberg as he scours the nation to meet fellow ‘Speed Freaks’. Whether they’ve fitted a 24,000cc W12 aero-engine into a car, or built from scratch a full Dakar off-road racer, Eisenberg gets into the mindset, behind the wheel, under the bonnet and in to the saddle of Britain’s fastest cars and motorbikes.

    Each 60-minute episode features extreme wacky vehicles, major modifications and maxed up tuning, adrenaline-filled racing action, fantastic feats of engineering combined with the lots of laughter, stress and drama – A must see for any petrolhead!

    Check out the preview here: https://youtu.be/UkK9q2yNeeM
     
    The Speed Freaks show was commissioned for ITV4 by Paul Mortimer, Head of Digital Channels and is produced by Keshet Productions. Speaking on behalf of Keshet Productions David Williams said “This high-octane series features a high octane excitement, to indulge anyone with an interest in cars, motorsports and engineering. Zef’s need for speed and desire to break the Pendine land-speed record is infectious and makes for compelling viewing”.

    Each week watch Eisenberg as he challenges his own MADMAX Race Team to take a different vehicle and turn it in to the fastest machine of its kind before he braves life and limb to test it to its full potential.

    The knowledge gleaned during the shows play a crucial part in helping Zef and the MADMAX Race Team to build a crazy 1200hp specially road-legal Porsche 911 Turbo to set the all outright speed record at Pendine Sands.

    About Zef Eisenberg:
    Eisenberg best known for his motorbike exploits is a self-proclaimed ‘Speed Freak’ and no stranger to speed, he currently holds over 47 British and world land speed records including a prestigious Guinness World Record. His records include the world's fastest turbine bike (234mph), the UK's fastest (no-fairing) 'naked' bike (225.6mph), world’s fastest motorbike racer on sand ever at 201.5mph to Britain’s fastest-ever motorcycle crash at over 230mph. 
     
    In September 2016 Eisenberg nearly paid the ultimate price when disaster struck at 234mph during a motorcycle record attempt, riding a 560bhp Rolls-Royce jet turbine-powered motorcycle. He broke 11 bones, was hospitalised for three months, spent a further three months in a wheelchair and had to learn to walk again. He defied doctors by racing on the anniversary of the crash on the same track, and just 5 months later became the first man in history to break the 200mph barrier on sand on a motorbike when he recorded a top speed of 201.572mph at Pendine in May 2018.
