Posted on 11. Jan, 2018 by in BMW Canada

  • New BMW M5 sets GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS for a longest
    deposit in 8 hours and a longest twin-vehicle drift.

  • BMW instructor Johan Schwartz finished a postulated drift
    of 232.5 miles (374.2 kilometres).

  • Schwartz and BMW Performance Center Chief Driving
    Instructor Matt Mullins achieved a twin automobile deposit over a
    stretch of 49.25 miles (79.3 kilometres) in one hour.

  • Custom refuelling complement grown to concede mid-drift
    refuelling during universe record attempt.

The new BMW M5 (combined fuel consumption: 10.5 l/100 km*; combined
CO2 emissions: 241 g/km*) is in record fever: on 11 Dec 2017,
instructor Johan Schwartz achieved a postulated deposit during a BMW
Performance Center in Greer, South Carolina, in a new BMW M5,
covering accurately 232.5 miles (374.2 kilometres) on a supposed skid
pad, thereby environment a new GUINESS WORLD RECORD for a longest drift
in 8 hours. Schwartz cracked a prior record by 143 miles
(230.1 kilometres).

A custom-built refuelling complement grown by BMW in collaboration
with a North Carolina-based association Detroit Speed done it possible
to deposit invariably but a mangle for a full 8 hours as
compulsory by a GUINESS WORLD RECORDS. This enabled a BMW M5 to be
refuelled during a deposit in a same approach that warrior jets can
refuel in mid-flight – yet in this box a operation was performed
by hand: a second BMW M5 driven by a Chief Driving Instructor of the
BMW Performance Center, Matt Mullins, accompanied a record-breaking
M5. Mullins blending to Schwartz’s flapping speed, permitting Matt Butts
of Detroit Speed to carrying out a refuelling operation, cumulative by
a reserve fasten that accessible him to hover a space between the
dual relocating vehicles by disposition out of a back window of a second car.

“Although we practised a refuelling several times before the
GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS pretension attempt, there was really small domain for
error,” pronounced Butts. “We’re really vehement to have played a partial in Johan
and BMW recapturing this record.”

A second GUINESS WORLD RECORD was awarded for a longest twin
automobile water-assisted drift: Schwartz and Mullins drifted together
for one hour, covering a sum of 49.25 miles (79.3 kilometres).
