New drift record



Um so BMW performance school is going to set a new drift record this may

Quote:
On Saturday, May 11th, 2013, BMW Performance Driving Instructor Johan Schwartz will attempt to beat the Guinness Book of World Record for the world's longest drift while driving one of the BMW Performance Center M5 school cars. His attempt will occur on the BMW skid pad, the same skid pad used to teach skid control at the BMW Performance Center. The M5 that Schwartz will drive is used to teach students how to control a skid and how to drive a car properly both in terms of performance and defensive driving.
Schwartz will try to best the current record just set last month of 11,180 meters (in February when the below video was produce, World Record was 9,035 feet, or almost 3.6 miles, set Sept. 30, 2011 in China. His goal is to beat that recording with one that will stand for a long time.

If you are interested in becoming a sponsor (proceeds go to the charity), please contact Johan Schwartz
