Sydney - Stunt woman Jolene Van Vugt was flushed with pride on Wednesday after setting a new land speed record for the fastest motorised toilet.

Van Vugt, a former Canadian motocross champion, steered the contraption through some early wobbles to 75km/h in Sydney, 7km/h more than the previous Guinness world record.
