Car News: Nissan sets new drifting world record

A pair of Nissan 370Zs have set a new Guinness
World Record for the longest ever twin-vehicle
drift.
The stunt, held in Dubai at the launch of Nissan's
‘370Z Drift Experience', saw the two V6-engined Z
cars drift around a track side by side for a total of
28.52km - 17.7 miles. Not bad, you will agree.
"The Nissan Z is a very popular car in the drifting
scene," said Samir Cherfan, MD of Nissan's Middle
East division, "and this new record is yet another
proof on the ability of this car to make drifting look
so easy."
It's a cool record for Nissan to notch up. Want a
few more records? The longest vehicle drift was
set earlier this year in Turkey, set by Harald Müller
who slid for 89.55 miles. The fastest drift? In 2013,
Jakub Przygonski went sideways at 135.44mph in
Poland.
And the record for the most amount of cars
performing donuts simultaneously, set in 2012,
stands at 107.
Reckon you're any better than these chaps?
