In Great Britain, a speed demon hit the road with all the comforts of home. Perry Watkins, 47, is going for a record on a race track, but his vehicle of choice is a Queen Anne table complete with a silver service.

It hit an average speed of nearly 114 miles per hour, peaking at 130.

Guinness must still ratify the data. The table is competing with a record of 92 miles per hour set by a speeding sofa three years ago.

Watkins says the biggest challenge is the ever-flapping tablecloth.
