Speed Junkie

Image 1 / 3

‘Speed Junkie’ sees host Ze Frank push himself to the limit by participating in number of fast and furious activities. From racing against an Olympic sprinter to find out why they are so much faster than the average runner, to free-falling from a plane to see what speed he can reach before air resistance takes hold – Ze is keen to try anything that will enable him to accelerate as fast as he can. The programme also sees him reach speeds of up to 310 mph when he races a high powered jet bus against a plane and travel faster than the speed of sound when he goes in a US Navy fighter jet. Thrill seekers prepare to indulge your ‘need for speed’.
