No less than 170 cars recently gathered at Bandimere Speedway in Denver, Colorado looking to set the Guinness World Record for the largest simultaneous car tire burnout over the weekend.
The official Guinness World Record was set in Australia in January this year when 126 cars started spinning up their rear wheels at the Summernats event. While the Aussies are hard to beat when it comes to burnouts, those in attendance at Bandimere appear (or at least, claim) to have broken the record, although nothing is official from Guinness World Records, just yet.
Drone footage of the stunt shows all 170 vehicles lined up alongside one edge of the facility and once the flags started waving, the rear wheels started spinning. Before long, smoke begins to fill the air with some car owners even fitting their vehicles with special tires to make blue-colored smoke.
It’s a pretty crazy thing to see and we imagine drivers on the nearby highway may have thought they were looking at a wildfire on the grassy hillside.
It is unclear if any official record keeper was actually at the mass-burnout to see if a record was indeed set and to verify that all vehicles were spinning their wheels at the same time could be a little challenging to confirm. Nevertheless, it truly is a sight to behold and rear-wheel drive enthusiasts in the Land Down Under should probably start planning their attempt at reclaiming the title from the Americans.
