Bangalore: 'Tornadoes', the motorcycle display team of Army Service Corps today broke two world records by being the only team to achieve a staggering distance of a 1100 metres with 54 persons on a single bike.
They broke the record of Corps of Military Police who carried 48 persons on a single moving 500 CC motorcycle here recently.
The team while exhibiting extraordinary skill, courage, endurance and mental strength, entered the annals of record books by performing this breathtaking feat on a 500 CC Royal Enfield motorcycle at the Runway of Air Force Station Yelahanka in the presence of a large number of military and civil dignitaries.
The 'Tornadoes' was raised in 1982 after having given a stupendous display of daredevilry in the 1982 Asian Games. "Since then the men of the Tornadoes Team by their sheer grit, determination and spirit of adventure have created a niche for themselves by rewriting various records," the release said.
The team at one point of time had achieved the distinction of holding seven world and national records of varying degrees of complexity and fortitude, it said.
