A tyre flipping contest in Newcastle has achieved a new Guiness world record.

The event which took place in Blackett Street, Newcastle city centre, on August 14th and 15th was sponsored by Continental agricultural tyres and featured a Tractor70 tyre weighing 100 kilos for the men and a 70 kilo CompactMaster AG telehandler tyre for women.

A new world record was recorded for the men’s 100 kilo 12 hour tyre flip with distance of 10.725 kilometres becoming the new benchmark.

“This was a brilliant event organised by Philip Pugh in aid of the Tiny Lives charity which helps support the Royal Victoria Infirmary Neonatal unit and Grace House a children’s Hospice,” says Continental agricultural specialist Richard Hutchins.

The Continental tyres were supplied by dealer New Bridgegate Tyres with eight tyres being used across seven different tyre flipping events.
