A 16-year-old girl sets the Guinness vehicle speed record by slalom with a Porsche 718 Spyder | The race


The Guinness records have amazed the whole world for years, and now a new record has been released that has to do with cars, especially with Porsche, and with a girl of only 16 years.

Chloe chambers is the name of the young woman who began to train as a kart driver at the age of 9, and now, thanks to that experience, Chambers has been named as the new holder of the title of Slalom with the fastest vehicle.

The challenge was to go through 51 equally spaced cones in the shortest time possible, with a lap time of 47.45 seconds achieved by Chloe, surpassing the previous record set in China in 2018.

As if this were not enough, you should know that Chloe achieved her feat at the wheel of a 2020 Porsche 718 Spyder , which was completely in stock, right down to its tires.

“It sounds easy, but it really isn’t. Weave between 50 cones as fast as possible, trying to beat a record time and knowing that you couldn’t touch one just to make the race count. I definitely felt the pressure, ”shared Chambers.

“Everything went well in my last race; the car worked perfectly and I found the grip I needed. Thanks to my family and Porsche for supporting me and believing in me, “she added.

Even though Chloe’s experience was in Go karts, the young driver managed to quickly adapt to driving a car, quickly gaining confidence and finding the right balance.

“We couldn’t be more proud that Chloe set the record,” said Klaus Zellmer, President and CEO of Porsche Cars North America. “On behalf of the entire Porsche family, we send our sincerest congratulations; We are pleased to have been able to support Chloe with her ambitious record attempt and share her relief at the success, ”he added.

According to the portal Yahoo!, Chambers’ record run was completed last August on an independently certified track consisting of 51 cones spaced 50 feet apart. Automotive technology maker Racelogic handled the race timing duties, which was overseen by a Guinness World Records judge.
