GT86 Sets 89.55-Mile Drifting World Record

Record

That's one hell of a long sideways journey.

A new Guinness World Record for the longest drift has been set, after German drifter Harald Muller went sideways in a Toyota GT86 for 2 hours and 25 minutes, covering a distance of 89.55 miles. That smashes the previous record of 51.3 miles set by a BMW M5 in South Carolina last year. The record attempt took place at a 0.15-mile course in Samsun, Turkey, where Muller completed 612 laps on a well-watered circuit of slippery tarmac.

Some may consider drifting on a wet surface cheating, but not Guinness. And that’s all that matters.
