Records are meant to be broken and David Anderson and Matthew Hine from Anderson’s Bodyshop did the same on a mobility scooter. The previous record for world’s fastest mobility scooter was 82 mph (approximately 132 kph). This record was held by Klaus Petersson from Denmark.
David Anderson and Matthew Hine took a Suzuki Bandit engine and clubbed it with a modified go kart vehicle chassis to create this record breaking mobility scooter. And this custom made scooter broke the record (although unofficially), not by inches, but by miles as speedometer clocked 107.6 mph (approximately 173kph) figure.
This record breaking run took place on August 30, 2014 at the Pokerstars Drag and Drift event hosted at the Jurby Motodrome. The video was uploaded on YouTube channel, Duke Video. The record breaking mobility scooter was made by Anderson. The bodywork is fully made of aluminium.
Although the mobility scooter broke the record, they are still to get in the books as officials from Guinness Records are yet to confirm the run.
