Record-Setting Burnout Attempt Includes 69 Cars, 35,000 HP – W/Video
Australian car enthusiasts have just set a Guinness World Record we can really support: the largest simultaneous car tire burnout. Earlier this month, 69 enthusiasts and more than 10,000 spectators gathered at the Canberra Exhibition Park in Australia in an attempt to set the record, and we’ve got the video below.
The event, which took about six months to prepare, included an interesting mix of cars. Of course there were plenty of Holdens and even a few classic Chevys, some of which were equipped with drag-ready engines. And on the other end of the spectrum is what appears to be an elderly Toyota Corolla. In all, the 69 cars produced about 35,000 horsepower and burned 138 tires, some of which were specially made to produce colored smoke. Since this was the first time the stunt was attempted, organizers set an initial target of sustaining the burnout for at least 30 seconds and have at least 50 cars succeed. Watch the video to find out what happens.
Not too long ago, a new world record was set for the most simultaneous donuts. That record currently stands at 57 cars doing donuts at the same time.
