Tuk Tuks are easily spotted throughout the bustling streets of Bangkok but are a little harder to find in England. Nonetheless, two cousins broke the world record for the highest speed reached on an authentic Thai Tuk Tuk at Elvington Airfield in Yorkshire on Monday.

Self-described "petrolhead" Matt Everard and his cousin, Russell Shearman, reached a speed of 119.584 km/hr on their modified Tuk Tuk after swapping the 350cc engine with a 1300cc fuel-injected Daihatsu power plant.

A belated congratulations to the two British daredevils. I wouldn't take a ride in the back if it's going at that kind of speed.
