Racing car travels a quarter of a mile in 5.7 Seconds

What speedy feat can you achieve in just under six seconds?

Okay, scoffing one and a half Cadbury’s Crème eggs is pretty admirable; we’re impressed, keep up the good work. Though you’re going to feel like a right fool when we tell you what racing driver Gary White has just pulled off.

He’s driven a quarter a mile. Let that sink in: four of those babies and he'll have driven a whole mile in under 24 seconds. 

Hurtling over hot tarmac in his Pro Modified-style Toyota GT86 at the Bahrain Drag Racing Championships, he was able to reach 247.95 mph in 5.774 seconds, setting a new world record for fastest import in the process.

Watch his heroics in action below.
