Biker set a new world record
In the UK, one of the strangest world records was set – an extreme biker accelerated to 122.5 kilometers per hour, standing on his head.
Check-in took place at the Elvington airfield in North Yorkshire. The peak speed of the rider was 76.174 miles per hour or 122.590 kilometers per hour. For comparison, the previous record holder was able to accelerate to 30 miles per hour.
Marco George, the author of the new record, posted the video on his YouTube channel. As he himself said, it took a little more than six months to prepare for the race – the biker works as a robotic engineer, and motorcycle racing is just his hobby.
Last week, Porsche talked about its unusual record: the Cayenne Turbo S hybrid crossover was the best on the track, which has not yet been. The car drove a circle on an unfinished road in 3 minutes 51 seconds – since no one had traveled around the ring yet, time automatically became a record.
The crossover drove half of the route along the usual asphalt road, and the remaining half-circle he had to drive over rough terrain from sand, gravel and grass. Of course, even Porsche representatives are not serious about the record and use this word exclusively in quotation marks.
