Bahrain’s EKanoo Racing has stunningly — but not exactly unexpectedly — shattered the three-year old 1/4-mile world elapsed time record for full-bodied doorslammers, as they ripped off a 5.445-second lap at 273.86 mph at the Bahrain International Circuit during round four of the Arabian Pro Series today.
