London: A new and unusual land speed world record has been set in Australia -- for the fastest motorised toilet, BBC reported.

Canadian stuntwoman Jolene Van Vugt recorded a speed of 75 km per hour at the Sydney Olympic Park, beating the previous record by seven km per hour. "That was so fun and I`m stoked to get the record," Van Vugt said.

In order to win the title, Van Vugt was timed over 100 metres in both directions.

"I`ve broken Guiness World Records before but I never thought I`d be the fastest toilet rider in the world, she told Australia`s Daily Telegraph newspaper.

The record-breaking ride was a promotional stunt to herald her upcoming Australian tour with the Nitro Circus, a collection of skilled athletes who perform outrageous stunts.

Van Vugt is no stranger to danger. She holds world records as the first female to backflip a dirt bike and for the longest female backflip.

"My craziest stunt was backflipping a dirtbike over the Grand Canyon," she said.
