The donut is one of the more worthless automotive exercises on the planet, but for some reason doing them gives us undeniable joy. One gentleman in the UK has perfected the donut to the point that of world record status. Russ Swift is already famous for automotive feats like the fastest-ever J-turn and the Guinness record for tightest parallel park. Now Swift has added the fastest time to complete ten donuts. Hit the jump to view Swift complete ten 360-degree turns in an Evo over a mere 16.07 seconds. As an added bonus, the folks at Guinness also added video of Mr. Swift's other record-setting automotive feats, which may be cooler than the donut record itself.

      Hilarious.

      I like that he kept his 4-ways on. You know, for safety.

      Those aren't really doughnuts right? I mean it's an AWD car so it isn't spinning on the same axis as it would if you were driving a RWD.

      Axis Spin: doesn't spin with the inside front as the axis...axis is on the inside but behind that wheel due to the awd.

      Doughnut: completing a circle with one inside front tire not moving from its original location, while the rear of the car rotates on that axis, creating a slolid circle of tire marks (hence the term donut)

        It's called a helicopter donut. So I guess technically there should be two categories of donut.

      Isn't he the guy who taught the grannies to do donuts and a sliding parallel park on Top Gear a few seasons ago?

      Wait... there's a guiness record for parallel parking? I could probably beat that.

        Did you watch the video? You'd better be pretty handy with a Cooper.
