Polish stunt-rider Maciej “DOP” Bielicki has broken the Guinness World Record for the world’s longest burnout on the Harley-Davidson Street Rod.  

 Bielicki’s new record stands at 4.5km (2.8 miles) and was set with the help of the latest Harley-Davidson Street Rod 750cc, which was unveiled in March this year. The previous record was set last year in the USA, with a distance of 3.7km (2.3 miles).

The record-attempt was organised by GOC Harley-Davidson Rzeszów, the biggest Harley-Davidson dealership in Poland (and all of Central-Eastern Europe), Game Over Cycles, a custom bike manufacturer and owner of H-D Rzeszów dealership, and Stunt Story, Poland’s first Harley-Davidson stunt show.

Interestingly, the attempt did not take place on a circuit or even on a long, straight stretch of road -but on a typical (closed) traffic route in the city of Rzeszów in the southeast of Poland. So, Bielicki had bends, junctions and even a roundabout to contend with, to break the record.

Maciej “DOP” Bielicki said: ” I was prepared for this attempt for a month. The path was a bit of a challenge because it was not straight. It was a normal road, close to where the Harley-Davidson Rzeszów dealer was located, which was specially closed to traffic. The road provided two crossings that I had to cross and a roundabout I had to go through. Also, in various parts of the path there were different slopes, which made burnout and drift a constant challenge; but in the end it went all the way. I am very happy that we have done so and I would like to thank all the people who made this effort possible. “
