A 28-year-old engineer from the UK has set a new Guinness World Record after touching speeds of over 40 mph in a motorised garbage bin.
According to Guinness World Record officials, design engineer Andy Jennings had to touch a top speed of over 30mph to beat the current record. He managed to hit 43 mph.
Fitted with a bike engine, seat and handle from a child’s scooter, the motorised garbage bin was designed in three months, said a Daily Mail report.
