Until now, the record was held by Josh Herin, who set a speed of 162.4 km / h while sliding his elbow in a turn. According to the rules of the Guinness Book of Records, the rider must pull the elbow at least 30 meters, otherwise the record will not be counted. Hyerin set the record in a Yamaha R6, but the guys at Motorrad took a Honda CBR 1000 RR-R Fireblade SP with racing slicks. Fabien Dresler, one of the editors of the magazine, snatched the Ring on the Slovakia circuit and set a new record.
During the first race, Fabien showed a speed of 161 km / h, just a little short of the record. The second race was more successful – 166 km / h. The record was taken. At the final, third race, Fabien showed an incredible result – 168.65 km / h.
