For 15 years it’s been Vesa Kivimäki’s dream to break the world record for the fast side wheelie in a car. To make his dream come true, he teamed up with tire manufacturer Nokian Tires to make the attempt happen.

Driving in a diesel BMW 330, Vesa set off down an airport runway in Seinäjoki, Finland. Looking to break the record that has been unbeaten for 19 years, he pushed the car in a way nobody has done before.

The result? A two-wheeled speed of 115.742 mph.

A lot of people are scared of going over 100 mph, but going over 100 mph on two wheels is another story. To see the daring attempt for yourself, click play on the video below.
