The record was set by the dynamic duo Jussi, 47, and his car Röhkö, model year 2006
The 47-year-old IT geek Jussi Kallioniemi says that car pushing is a game of skill, not brute force. He is motivated by problem-solving, so he did everything he could to make the vehicle roll as lightly as possible. For example, he wanted to have tires with the lowest possible rolling resistance, adjust the inflation pressures exactly, and maintain a systematic approach to training. For the performance, Jussi used his own car, a 2006 Saab that weighs 2.1 metric tons and is affectionately known as “Röhkö”. All of his cars have had a nickname, and Röhkö became known for the groan (“röhkäisy”) it lets out when starting.
