Using a 412kW/680Nm 2013 BMW M5, BMW Performance Driving School instructor Johan Schwartz will attempt to break the current Guinness world record for the longest drift, an 11.18km continuous slide set by Abdo Feghali in a Chevrolet Camaro SS set at the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi in February this year.

BMW has its sights set on a record that “will stand for a long time” of over 64km.


BMW’s assault on the world record will take place on its own driver training skid pad at the BMW Performance Centre in South Carolina on May 11, 2013.
