FAMOUS Slovak strongman Juraj Barbarič set a new Slovak record for pulling a car. In 14 hours and 10 minutes, he pulled a Peugeot Passenger car weighing more than 1,200 kilograms for a marathon distance of 42 kilometres.

He started at 4:00 on June 29 in Košice, and pulled the car to nearby Seňa and returned back, the TASR newswire wrote.
