Record breaker explains how taxi challenge came about

"After a couple of beers and a night out we were looking at this taxi fare and thought they were the most expensive taxi fares ever. We looked it up and it turned out there's a world record and we went and did that.

We named the taxi Hannah after the Ella Fitzgerald song 'hard hard Hannah' because she's a gal who likes to see men suffer and she's certainly done that for us."
