The Guinness World Records world record for the largest simultaneous motorcycle burnout is 300 and was achieved by Ropali Motorcycles, Kymco, FDR and History (all Philippines), in the Tagaytay Convention Center, Tagaytay City, Philippines, on 11 April 2015.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest simultaneous car tyre burn-out; it involved 103 cars in an event organised by Street Machine Summernats at the Street Machine Summernats 28 event in Canberra, Australia, on 1 January 2015.
Dryden was poised to serve up an even longer burnout on the small oval racetrack, but at the record-setting 2.23-mile mark, his rear tyre disintegrated, ending his smoky run.
He left the bike on its side on the racetrack and walked away with his arms raised in triumph.
To ensure the accuracy of the world record burnout's length, a surveyor measured the circumference of the track before the record attempt.
