Some world records are hard or almost impossible to beat. Some records are just there waiting to be beaten. Back in 2018 (August 25), Mattel, Inc. set the Longest Hot Wheels Track in Zaryadye Park in Moscow with a track that stretches 1,838 feet 3.05 inches (560.30 meters), but a year on, on August 24, 2019, that record was smashed by American firm, Alfred Benesch & Company.

Alfred Benesch & Company mobilized employees and their children to create a 2,176 feet 2 1/8 inches in Foster Township, Pennsylvania, U.S.A. A Hot Wheels Cyber Speeder ran through the length in 2 minutes and 50 seconds.

Breaking record was one thing. The preparation leading up to the event was another. But we shan’t dig into. Lets just say that it wasn’t as simple as throwing a bunch of Hot Wheels tracks on a sloppy motor vehicle road.

If you keen know the details, you can read all about it on Alfred Benesch & Company website. Meanwhile, here’s a the mesmerizing journey of the Cyber Speeder streaking down the record-breaking Hot Wheels track:
