718 SpyderSixteen-year-old Chambers achieved the 47.45-second run on Friday, August 21 2020, setting a new benchmark pace in an exercise that tests both driver and vehicle. She achieved this feat behind the wheel of a 2020 Porsche 718 Spyder, which was completely stock, right down to its tires. Chambers, who has seven years of racing experience, currently competes in several karting series.

“It looks easy, but it’s really not – to weave between 50 cones as fast as possible, trying to beat a record time and knowing I couldn’t touch a single one for the run to count – I definitely felt the pressure,” Chambers said. “Everything came together on my final run; the car worked beautifully and I found the grip I needed. Thank you to my family and to Porsche for supporting and believing in me.”

Because her racing experience is mostly in Kart, Chloe had to quickly adapt to driving a car. Nevertheless, she thrived on the challenge, quickly gaining confidence and finding the right balance, in the process opting for a Porsche 718 Spyder equipped with a manual gearbox. She beat a record set in China in 2018.

“We couldn’t be more proud that Chloe set the record,” said Klaus Zellmer, President, and CEO of Porsche Cars North America. “From the whole Porsche family we send our heartfelt congratulations – we’re pleased to have been able to support Chloe with her ambitious record attempt and share her relief that it was successful.”

The record was broken under the supervision of an adjudicator from Guinness World Records on an independently certified course measured by a surveyor. The course was laid out on an airstrip and consisted of 51 cones equally spaced at 50-foot intervals. Timekeeping of the record run was conducted by Racelogic.
