New record for world's fastest toilet on wheels

Jolene Van Vugt setting the new record

A new and unusual land speed record has been set in Australia - for the fastest motorised toilet.

Canadian stuntwoman Jolene Van Vugt recorded a speed of 75km/h (46mph) in Sydney, beating the previous record by 7km/h.

"I flew into Australia yesterday and came out here to jump straight on the toilet," she said. "That was so fun and I'm stoked to get the record."

In order to win the title she was timed over 100m (330ft) in both directions.

There were some problems early on when the chain fell out but the toilet was soon repaired.

Jolene Van Vugt holds various world records for stunts on dirt bikes.
