Driving on Two Wheels at 115 MPH Is Incredibly Irresponsible (But Cool)

Stunt driver Vesa Kivimäki might officially be the fastest man on two wheels, but he doesn’t ride motorcycles. Instead, on an airfield in Seinäjoki, Finland, Vesa set a new Guinness World Record for the fastest side wheelie in a car, hitting an unthinkable 115 miles per hour.

Driving on two wheels is already hard enough, but the risks are substantially increased at these ridiculous speeds. One slip of the wheel and Vesa would have found himself, and the BMW he was driving, doing barrel rolls down the runway instead. [YouTube via Likecool]
