It's just one of the latest achievements to be revealed today by the Guinness book of World Records.

A monowheel motorcycle is one large wheel that revolves around a track and the engine and rider sit inside. The driver has to control the vehicle using careful control of throttle and perfect balance.

To achieve the World Records title, the monowheel had to be run solely on power produced by its engine and the speed had to be timed from a flying start over a distance of no less than a quarter mile (402 metres).
