MO­TOR­ING jour­nal­ist Jesse Adams has per­formed the world’s long­est car drift, al­though it remains unof­fi­cial for now as ver­i­fi­ca­tion by Guin­ness World Records is pend­ing.

Adams, who writes for IOL and Star Mo­tor­ing, com­pleted 168.5km and 1 000 laps in a time of five hours and 45 min­utes, driv­ing a Toy­ota 86.

The of­fi­cial record is held by Ger­many’s Har­ald Müller, who man­aged 144.125km on a skid­pan in Turkey back in 2014, also in a Toy­ota 86.

Asked how he felt af­ter the feat, Adams said: “I just want a hot bath now and to go to bed.”
