It is sometimes called a doughnut – the tire marks left on the road or dirt after spinning your car’s wheels into a burnout. Just outside of Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, someone created the biggest ‘doughnut’ ever according to the Guinness Book of World Records, but the purpose wasn’t just for one last superlative for the Middle East this year.
At the enormous car lot owned by Al Jazirah Vehicle Agencies just outside Riyadh, two drift-spec Mustang RTR-Ds, driven by Al Jazirah Ford Racing’s Abdulhadi Al-Qahtani and Muath Al-Essa created a breast cancer ribbon to promote awareness of the disease in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, according to the online publication iol.co.za.
A video has been published online showing the ribbon, officially measuring 883.98 square meters. The video, made in part using aerial drone footage from above the ribbon, shows the creation of the mark in concrete that took 45 minutes to complete.
The drivers used several sets of specially made burnout tires that not only generated huge clouds of pink smoke, but also left pink marks on the concrete.
