    Hey guys,

    Australia has just broken a guinness world record for a car being thrown the longest distance by catapult.

    I think the original record was 51 meters, but you also have to factor in things like weight of object thrown. We have thrown a VW Beetle.

    The new recored set was 75 metres.

    This was all organised by one of Australias radio stations just getting local companies involved.

    Anyway check out the video guys:
