Nokian Tyres ice speed record with an Audi RS6 - driver Janne LaitinenIt’s a simple rule – records are made to be broken! Last month Juha Kankkunen drove a Bentley Continental Superssports convertible across the frozen waters of the Baltic Sea at 205.48mph.

Less than a month later and we have a new record. Nokian Tyres test driver Janne Laitinen drove a stock Audi RS6 with Hakkapeliitta 7 studded tyres on the Gulf of Bothnia, Finland to a new record speed of 206.05mph.
