Five European gamers set a new world record last week after playing Forza Motorsport 6 for more than 48 hours straight on France’s Le Sarthe Circuit on Xbox One. They used Ford GT car and it is now a new Guinness World Record for “longest video marathon on a racing game”. They completed about 3,015 laps – or 41,004km – of the track.
The gamers, who used a special Forza steering wheel by Fanatec and gaming pedals, were allowed a 10-minute break for every hour they played. To ensure they could get some sleep during the night, these breaks could be saved up for later, so they could have a 40-minute break if they played continuously for four hours. They could also drive at whatever speed they wanted.
