The former record holder and insider Ed Bolian from coast to coast broke the driving record for cannonballs from New York to Los Angeles.
Bolian, who claims to have been in contact with the new record holders, says the new record is less than 26 hours, but did not disclose the exact time in the video above released Thursday. That means drivers would have had to drive at least 108 miles an hour over 2801 miles on average. Bolian says that in some states, the record team averaged over 120 mph. The Cannonball insider neither said which car the run was stopped with, nor announced who the driver or drivers were.
The news comes just five weeks after a team took empty streets from coronavirus pandemic locking orders to set a record time of 26 hours 38 minutes. These drivers were sitting behind the steering wheel of an Audi A8, which was equipped with aftermarket fuel tanks attached to the interior.
According to Bolian, this new record run was not the only one to take advantage of the decline in road traffic. A handful of other niche records, including the coast-to-coast record for solo drivers, the diesel-to-coast record and coast-to-coast costs and the coast-to-coast record, have also dropped in recent weeks. Another team even managed to set a time of 26 minutes and 43 minutes from New York to Los Angeles, within five minutes of the above-mentioned Audi A8 record time.
The Cannonball Record is a continuous coast-to-coast ride that begins at the Red Ball Garage in Manhattan, New York and ends at the Portofino Inn in Redondo Beach, California. The goal is to get to Los Angeles as quickly as possible by keeping the three-digit speeds on the American highways safe. Given the dangers involved, many, including but not limited to law enforcement officers, are not fans of competition, particularly given that our country is in the midst of a devastating pandemic.
According to Bolian, the new record team is preparing to release a documentary that corresponds to the official announcement. The former record holder expects to have them on his VinWiki YouTube channel to discuss the run and reveal more details, though there is no word on when this will happen.
