If you’ve ever wished someone on the toilet would hurry up, you’ll love Jolene Van Vugt. The newly crowned “Porcelain Princess” from Ontario set a new Guinness World Record this week: fastest speed on a motorized toilet. On the 100 meter dash, she held an average speed of 75 km/h (46.6 mph).
The stunt, held in Sydney, Australia was designed to promote the Nitro Circus, a motocross event featuring Van Vugt. The previous record, set in Milan by Edd China last March, was 68 km/h.
Fittingly, the toilet ride was almost derailed by a problem with the chain, but Van Vugt got her ride working well enough to set a new record. On her Web site, she writes:
It was super fun and it’s always cool to work towards a Guinness World Record and what more could a girl ask for then a world record on a toilet! lol We were debuting the toilet contraption as it will be a new piece used on tour, but you have to come checkout the show to see what is in store for this motorized toilet :)
