There are so many questions that come up when you read that someone broke a world record by drifting for nearly six hours straight. How bad were the hand cramps? Was there an urge to pee at all? Did the driver pee? Did the people officially witnessing it have to take a witness break to pee?
If you’re not familiar with the Nürburgring, it often doesn’t resemble rush-hour traffic in Texas. That made the sight of a bunch of Ram trucks understandably strange, but apparently these folks attempted a world record for “largest parade of pickup trucks.” Huh. What a way to spend a Saturday.
What do you do when you’ve got a lot of state pride and a lot of race track? You drive around that race track waving the glory of the red, white and blue—the Lone Star one, of course. Everything is bigger in Texas, y’all.

I found the entrance to hell and it’s this nearly 400-foot long tunnel of fire.

Mazda set a Guinness World Record this weekend by gathering 683 Mazda MX-5s in the Netherlands.
Fifty-one miles isn't terribly long as far as road trips go. But what if you're sideways the entire time? That's exactly what driver Johan Schwartz did in a BMW M5 recently, and it won him a Guinness World Record.
Perhaps our favorite world record is "See How Many People Can Do Simultaneous Car Donuts Without Killing Themselves." The current record of 57 simultaneous donuts in Australia was bested and inverted yesterday when 75 drifters pulled off the same feat at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, California last week.
