*OFFICIAL* Guinness World Record Simultaneous Donuts 75 Cars
More than 70 cars convened at Infineon Raceway and Sonoma Drift on Tuesday to break the Guinness World Records Record for Most Cars Performing Doughnuts Simultaneously.
Seventy-five cars performed simultaneous doughnuts for more than 15 seconds, breaking the previous world record of 57 cars, which was set in Queensland, Australia, in 2010. Evidence of the claim was documented and will be sent to Guinness World Records for final verification.
The cars were piloted by drifters from across Northern California who participate in the raceway's weekly Sonoma Drift powered by NOS program.
The program, which is in its second consecutive year, provides drifters a safe, legal and controlled environment in which to hone their skills.
"That was a blast. With all the smoke and all the cars doing doughnuts simultaneously; I've never seen anything as big as that," said professional drifter and San Francisco native Calvin Wan. "That was just a great time."
More than 200 fans were on hand to witness the record breaking attempt, which took place in the raceway's main paddock under cloudy skies. All drifters and spectators were admitted free into the raceway.

Saab 9-3 Aero Carlsson
My dad had the opportunity to appraise the limited edition Saab 9-3 Aero Carlsson during the week starting 17-Jan-2011. This is the first car from the limited edition of 96 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Erik Carlsson's first RAC rally win in a Saab 96.
This video is not a review and does the car no justice, though we thought it a worthwhile last hour to have spent with the car. The intention is to try and share what will one day become something of a collectable, a point already proven by a BMW driver who tailgated us so he could record the car over on his phone.
Unfortunately for me it was during a week of exams, which being both an engineering student and the owner of a 6 year old Saab 9-3, I can honestly say I have never had such a valid reason to procrastinate.
Just be sure to turn the volume up to max.!
Beautiful Swedish car, SAAB 9-5.
I am really into SAAB cars; I own a 2003 9-3 that I am very fond of. I put together this video, from different clips, for the new Saab 9-5. I think the new 9-5 is very stylish in design and sporty in performance. I am seriously considering buying one and when I do I will be sure to make a video to share how I feel about Saab's great cars

2011 Saab 9-5 Aero Turbo6 XWD Start Up, Engine, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 2011 Saab 9-5 Aero. Released as a late 2010 model, the 2011 now boasts a panoramic glass roof along with the great redesign. Overall makes the car have a much more stately appearance and further set it in a more sport/luxury sedan class.
