New water record
Published: November 8, 2006
|On October 25, 2006, Henrik Lodin from Kramfors, Sweden, managed to beat the world record for a long distance run for a snowmobile on water. He drove his Polaris Dragon 600 H.O. '06 on the Angerman River. After 2 hours and 39 minutes, he was back, and the GPS showed 105.74 miles. The attempt is pending registration and analysis for the Guinness Book of World Records.|
Henrik tells the reporters:
"Like you saw, I didn't sunk my sled like other record breakers. When the GPS showed my goal, I went to shore and up to my trailer dry and clean! It feels good to beat an 18-year-old record. If the old champ, Henry Bieda or someone else beat my record I will go for really looong run. Like I said, I went up to my trailer dry and clean."
Congratulations to Henrik Lodin!
