Record Burnout

Do you like burnouts? If so, click video to see a recap of the "World’s Largest Simultaneous Motorcycle Burnout". The record-breaking motorcycle event was held at Smoky Mountain Harley-Davidson dealership located in Maryville Tennessee back in 2006.

A burnout clinic was offered to participants on the Thursday and Friday prior that demonstrated the proper burn-out technique. In order to qualify participants had to have executed a three-second burn-out within a ten-second window of time. Concrete barriers will be used to brace the riders’ front wheels adding extra protection for riders and their motorcycles. 

The event started with over 200 motorcyclists, on motorcycles of all types including Harley-Davidson and many metrics. What started out as an organized effort, ended up being somewhat of a free-for-all. The record is currently acknowledged as the world’s largest in the Guinness Book of World Records.
