Apparently it is not against Guinness regulations to position sprinklers onto the track for this event. For some reason, the Bugatti Veyron Fastest Production Car issue comes to mind! Will BMW be stripped of this title in a few years after enough people point out the water issue? It did take years for Bugatti to be stripped of its title–after it was highlighted repeatedly that the actual production Veyron was limited to a speed lower than the record. The rules state that the “Fastest Production Car” must be able to hit top speed in production form.
