Video of the week: 16 year old Porsche driver sets world record



Sixteen year old Chloe Chambers is barely old enough to hold a licence, but still managed to prove she can drive rings around the best when she set a new Guinness World Record for "fastest vehicle slalom" last month.

Of course it helped that she was behind the wheel of the spectacularly agile Porsche 718 Spyder. On a New Jersey airstrip on the 21st August, the ultimate car/driver combo danced around 51 cones, set 15m (50 feet) apart in just 47.45 seconds - more than half a second faster than the previous record holder, China's Jia Qiang in a Chevy Camaro RS in 2018.
