Mercedes driver Mauro Calo shattered the world record for drifting at the Mercedes Benz World on June 19th. Driving a Mercedes-Benz
C63 AMG, a car known for its power and agressive exhaust note, Calo drifted for an incredible 7,572ft. breaking the previous record of 1,293ft. A delaminated tire forced him to pull out, less than 350ft short of a 1.5 mile drift. "The C63 is great for this sort of thing. The weather was bone dry, which made things easier for me but harder for the car," said Calo.
