Stunt drivers belonging to the Al Jazirah Ford Racing Team in Saudi created the world’s largest tire mark as part of a larger drive to spread awareness about breast cancer. The two drivers, Abdulhadi Al-Qahtani and Muath Al-Essa drove Ford Mustang RTR drift vehicles which emitted pink smoke and had pink bow ties on their rear windows.
Representatives from the Guinness Book of World Records were on hand at the storage center of the team to certify the tire mark as the largest in the world. Alan Pixsley, a Guinness World Records adjudicator, confirmed the new record, and he gave an official certificate to the two drivers.
The tire mark made by the two drivers to signify the breast cancer awareness ribbon measured a massive 883.98 square meters or 9,515 square feet and the drivers needed 45 minutes to complete the image. In order to break the record, they need to create a mark that covered 500 square meters. However, the drivers felt they could easily create a much bigger one and this is why they performed the stunt in an area that covered 883.98 square meters.
Normally, October is the month of breast cancer awareness, but the record attempt was made in December by the Saudi Arabian racers. What matters is not the month in which the record was broken but the role of the gesture in promoting awareness about this important cause.
