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.
While I was at Infineon to drive the STaSIS S5 a couple weeks back, I kept seeing this silver blur howling past everything on the track. It looked like an old Quattro… but that fast?
The last time I blew past the limits of my driving ability in a big howling V8 and hooned into a turn way too fast, I was at Altamont Speedway and I spun out in a most dramatic fashion. Now I'm in a car worth 110 times as much, leadfooting it down the hill at Infineon, right at the Chute, and I'm totally into that…
