Britain’s fastest snowboarder Jamie Barrow broke his previous Guinness World Record, clocking a new fastest speed on a snowboard while being towed on a frozen lake.

Previously, Barrow set a record of 99.87 km/h in 2016 but this time, he returned to the same lake in St. Moritz, Switzerland with a more powerful vehicle. He was towed by a Maserati Levante with Pirelli Scorpion winter tyres – with 474 studs per tyre where each were 4mm long.

Credit to Maserati’s active Q4 Intelligent All-Wheel Drive System and its newly-developed Electronic Power Steering System, the advanced technology allowed the Levante to perform on the frozen lake surface, without losing the razor-sharp steering feel expected of any Maserati.

As a result, after two 100m runs in separate directions as required to meet Guinness World Record guidelines, the average speed recorded was 149.65 km/h – a new Guinness World Record for the fastest speed recorded on a snowboard.
