JOURNALIST’S LONGEST CAR DRIFT
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.”
