World's fastest...... toilet? by Southwest Kia
The New World’s Fastest Motorized Toilet Goes 46.6 MPH
This is Jolene Van Vugt topping out at 46.6 miles per hour (75km/h) on a kart/bog, setting the new Guinness World Record on a Motorized Toilet. Timed twice over 100 meters in Sydney, she smashed the previous record by 4.3 mph. Van Vugt described the toilet on her blog stating, "It was pretty gnarly and I had a few close calls with the kart getting a little sketchy at high speeds on the rough, angled, cobble stones out front of the Sydney stadium." Van Vugt performs in Travis Pastrana's Nitro Circus and holds two other world records, both for back flips on dirt bikes. (Hat tip to Steven!)
“I flew into Australia yesterday and came out here to jump straight on the toilet,” said Van Vugt.
“That was so fun and I'm stoked to get the record.”

Although a few technical issues threatened to derail the attempt, the first CMRC Women’s Canadian Motocross National Champion managed to negotiate the problems before going on a roll.
She completed the stunt in both directions with an average of the two speeds taken to give her the new world record.
Where's the bottle of champers to toast her victory?
While some detractors may poo-poo her achievements, there's no doubt that taking a trip on the conveyable convenience look weeeeeeee-ly fun
Van Vugt holds a host of other world records, including being the first woman to backflip a dirt bike.
