The Fastest Lap Driving Record Around Manhattan Has Been Broken [VIDEO]

you tube

As we approach the 9/11 anniversary this week, upsetting the New York city police would seem to be a bad idea. Apparently during the summer of 2013, a record was set for the fastest loop around Manhattan starting from 116th St. on the FDR heading downtown, up the Henry Hudson Highway, and back down to 116th St. in just 24 minutes. This is defiantly a no-no.

The NYPD is now on the lookout for the driver who posted this video showing him driving the 26.5-mile loop around Manhattan in 24 minutes, 7 seconds. That would be an unofficial record, not to mention highly illegal.

The NYPD also calls it “reckless” and “dangerous,” and says that they have license plate readers that will help in the investigation. The ‘Drive Free or Die’ website Jalopnik says the driver was going an average speed of 66 mph and that he told them,

“Being a fast driver doesn’t mean that you’re inherently a bad or reckless driver…I’m in control.”

The previous records for this journey were set at 26 minutes in 2010 and before that Alex Roy did it within 27 minutes back in 2001. Do NOT try this stunt, it could land you in jail !
