A teenage racing driver has broken the Guinness World Record for Fastest Vehicle Slalom.

Sixteen-year-old Chloe Chambers, a US karting driver, broke the record at an airfield in New Jersey, USA, driving a Porsche 718 Spyder.

On one run through the 762-metre course, Chambers tied with the previous record.

"It looks easy, but it’s really not – to weave between 50 cones as fast as possible, trying to beat a record time and knowing I couldn’t touch a single one for the run to count – I definitely felt the pressure," Chambers said.

Her 47.45 second run broke the world record by half a second, all under the watchful eyes of Guinness World Record officials and a host of electronic equipment.

"Everything came together on my final run; the car worked beautifully and I found the grip I needed. Thank you to my family and to Porsche for supporting and believing in me."
