BMW Sets Record For Longest Time Drifting In 8 Hour Period By Refueling Five Times Mid-Drift

January 11, 2018

This is a video of a BMW M5 setting the Guinness World Record for longest time drifting in an 8-hour period by refueling five times during a single uninterrupted drift via a man with a fuel hose hanging out of another drifting M5. Apparently the rules actually allow you to stop to refuel, or use an oversized gas tank, but BMW thought that would be too easy (and I felt that would not be worth watching), so they decided to go with the mid-drift refueling method. They demolished the previous record of 89.55 miles with a staggering 232.5 miles over the course of eight hours. That's a lot of drifting! Afterwards, they also set the record for longest tandem drift, with a one-hour 49.25 mile slide. Clearly, somebody has been watching too much The Fast And Furious: Tokyo Drift. And that person is me -- please, somebody come turn it off and make me to go to work before I get fired or Netflix calls me out on Twitter.

Keep going for two videos, the second of which is a longer behind-the-scenes video with more details about the record and their method.

Thanks to Nick R, who came up with the idea of fast-food restaurants offering a drift-delivery service during work commutes. Heck yeah, I'd drive for Taco Bell.

    Once, mankind dreamed of reaching the stars. Mankind has since drifted its way into obscurity.

    All that turning and not a single turn signal... Typical BMW drivers.

    Also, one dude's name who's involved with this is Matt Butts. This is important information that everyone should know.

    Not tryna nitpick... but when they were refueling and made contact the car stopped drifting... doesn't anyone else notice this??? I feel like I'm taking crazy pills!

  • It doesn't matter. The rules say they could stop to refuel if they wanted to.

  • Fartbutt

    Oh, missed that part, thanks. That's cheating! But it is a BMW and BMW's rule so I'll let it "slide"

    I tried this once but it was in more of a "That's a orgy" context.

    So what's stopping someone from immediately breaking this record? If people can waste 8 hours doing this, why not waste 8 hours and 1 minute? 9 hours? 10?

    Seems more of an accomplishment in doing a tediously boring activity than a driving skill-kinda award..

  • Because it's the longest drift in 8 hours - you get 8 hours to do as much drifting as you can in it.

  • TheQiwiMan

    Oh. Well that makes sense then. I misunderstood the whole point of the accomplishment.

    Thanks lookin out, sis! :-)

    What language is that? I've learned that's a British show. Is the theme song in... Korean or something?

  • Apparently, the lyrics are:

    Brum Brum, gets things done
    Super-cruisin' super hero
    Brum Brum, here he comes


    Brum Brum, gets things done
    Super cruisin' super hero
    Brum Brum, here he comes
    Way to go, Brum!

    Brum's a super car
    Who'll always be right there for you
    Stoppin' crooks from getting away

    A crazy super star
    He's racing everywhere for you
    Brum's in town saving the day!

    Brum Brum, gets things done
    Super-cruisin' super hero
    Brum Brum, here he comes

    Brum Brum, gets things done
    Super cruisin' super hero
    Brum Brum, here he comes
    Way to go, Brum!
