Just recently, they posted a 2007 Record-Breaking Video on their YouTube Channel, which shows a brave car stunt performance of Englishman Terry Grant doing 10 consecutive donuts or spins, while he was standing on the automobile’s roof.

Grant started out by driving the car himself and setting it on to a spin. Then, he climbed out the window and moved onto the car’s roof, while it was still doing its spinning motion.

Using his trademark 1937 Ford Sedan, multi-record holder Grant accomplished the record of doing the most number of consecutive donut spins, while he was on the car roof in the presence of a Guinness World Records Adjudicator at the Santa Pod Raceway in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, United Kingdom on October 3, 2007. This stunt also appeared on the Chinese TV show, CCTV.

In 2012 though, Grant’s record was broken by Brazilian Alberto Aires Wierzbicki, who was able to achieve 52 donut spins at  Pinhais, Paraná, Brazil on August 12, 2012.

It is not all that bad for Grant though. Because while Wierzbicki broke his record for the most number of consecutive donut spins while standing on top of the roof of a car, he is still the record holder for the Fastest Time to Do 10 Donuts in a Car, as he did this in 14.81 seconds. Grant is also the current record holder for the Most Simultaneous Car Donuts by the Same Driver. He did four back in January 8, 2006.

Aside from these record, Grant is also the Guinness World Records holder for the Fastest Time to Change a Wheel on a Spinning Car, which he did for 3 minutes and 10 seconds, the Narrowest J-Turn at 7 inches between the car length of 11 feet and 9 inches and the space between two barriers of 12 feet and 4 inches. He is also the Fastest in driving a car for one mile with just two wheels at 2 minutes and 55 seconds and the record holder for the Fastest Mile Driven in Reverse for 1 minute and 37.02 seconds.
