WATCH and relive a Guinness World Records classic as Brit Terry Grant performs 10 Donut (spins) in a car…Whilst Standing on the Roof!
Friday 22 May 2015 (London, UK) – GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS, the global authority in record-breaking achievement, is sharing a record breaking classic from 2006 of Briton Terry Grant achieving 10 consecutive donuts (spins) in a car while standing on the roof of the car.
The incredible footage sees Terry Grant, a multiple record holder and car stunt driver, begin by performing numerous donut spins of the car sitting in the driver’s seat before climbing through the window and moving onto the roof where he stood for 10 consecutive spins.
Terry achieved the record under the watchful eye of a Guinness World Records Adjudicator in his trademark 1937 Ford Sedan at the Santa Pod Raceway in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, UK, on 3 October 2007 and also appeared on Chinese TV show CCTV.
Sadly, Terry’s record was broken in 2012, and broken by some length, when Brazilian Alberto Aires Wierzbicki achieved 52 spins in Pinhais, Paraná, Brasil, on 12 August 2012. It’s not all bad news though, Terry still holds two records for the Fastest time to do 10 donuts (spins) in car (14.81 seconds) and Most simultaneous car donuts by the same driver, which is four, both of which date back to 8th January 2006.
In addition he holds the Guinness World Records title for the Narrowest J-turn (18 cm (7 in) between the car length 360 cm (11 ft 9 in) and the space between two barriers 378 cm (12 ft 4 in)), Fastest time to change a wheel on a spinning car (3 min 10 sec), Most people in a car during a side wheelie (six), Fastest time to drive a car one mile on two wheels (2 mins 55 sec) and Fastest mile driven in reverse (1 min 37.02).
The footage of Terry is part of our weekly YouTube ‘Guinness World Records Classics’ where we revisit an awesome Guinness World Records title from times gone by. Also, later this year, Guinness World Records will celebrate its 60th anniversary on 27th August so it’s our chance to share iconic records from our archives through the years.
