 A professional race car driver has broken a world record  for kart racing while raising money for charity.

Daniel Burkett set out to break the Guinness World Record for longest karting distance on an indoor track in 24 hours.

He began his solo race Tuesday evening at Speedworld Indoor Kart Track in Winnipeg. Burkett made his goal to travelled 750 kilometres by the time the clock ran out Wednesday at 6 o'clock. The record to beat was 732 kilometres.
