Guinness World Records is still documenting the biggest, smallest, longest, and weirdest around the globe. It’s fascinating to see who ate the most ghost peppers in one sitting or the longest fingernails ever measured. The automotive industry isn’t excluded from this list of extremes either. In fact, a groundbreaking motor design helped an average golf cart earn the title of the fastest in the world.
Guinness World Records is still going strong
Guinness World Records seek out the most incredible feats around the globe. The group’s mission is to give every person a platform for documenting record-holders in various categories. As new generations of talent emerge, they break old records. And technology advances, Guinness continues to record new boundary-breaking achievements in revolutionary skill sets.
According to Guinness World Records, the process for documenting the extreme continues to be all-inclusive and respectful. That goes for existing record-holders, upcoming challengers, the brand, and every individual behind the brand. Additionally, it promotes enthusiasm for new endeavors and champions fun for competitors in the incredible feats. Finally, it aims to inspire new challengers and entertain the world with its ever-changing roster of unbelievable stunts.
How challengers earn a spot in Guinness World Records
Anyone can become a challenger against the impressive list of Guinness World Record-holders. For those looking to challenge an existing record, the process consists of three online steps. Search for the skills category you’d like to challenge. Select it. Submit your request, and await further instructions.
And if your skill hasn’t already been documented, you can apply for a new world record category. However, the group warns that it rejects 60 percent of all new skill applications.
