World Record: 75 Donuts at Once (videos)
by Zack K
This post is dedicated to Dan Frederiksen, who called the GTR “primitive.”
This is my kind of team building exercise: setting the world record for most simultaneous donuts. Dear “trust fall”, you are officially the saltine packet at the buffet of team work. The previous record was 57, done in Australia sometime between 1902 and now. This time, 75 cars from around Northern California assembled at Infineon, for the weekly Sonoma Drift event. All the cars spread out on the tarmac. Some elected to put a cone down as a reference point. Considering you’re swinging a 3,000lb metal bat next to other 3,000lb metal bats, might be a good idea to stay in your area.
After some brake stands (the hoon’s answer to the National Anthem) the cars let loose, looking like a pinwheel firework factory mishap. Spirals of tire smoke as far as the eye could see. (Good thing I brought my re-useable grocery bags to the store today; It’s all about balancing our carbon footprint.) And where there’s drift cars, there’s cameras. Like a football replay thingy, we found 5 good angles for you to watch from. Enjoy, and bless these 75 brave drivers. They’re like the Buzz Aldrins of our generation. Ok, not really, but this is awesome.
Look for China to eventually break this record, with a bunch of 12 year old drivers on growth hormones in cars that “so are NOT direct copy cats of a Nissan, Mustang or Mazda!!”
