Forty-one year old professional stunt driver Vesa Kivimäki recently teamed up with tyre manufacturer Nokian Tyres to attempt to break the world record for the fastest side wheelie, which is an odd way of sayiong, keeping a car on two wheels.

The record was achieved in a diesel BMW 330 fitted with Nokian tyre, with the speed measured over a set distance of 100 metres (328 ft).

Vesa broke the previous record of 181.25 km/h (112.62 mph) that was set over a 100 m flying start by Göran Eliason from Sweden on the two wheels of a Volvo 850 Turbo in Såtenäs, Sweden back in 1997.
